Cancer Foundation

This June, we’re partnering up with Pepsi to donate money to help Arizona families and children affected by pediatric cancer. Barro’s Pizza will donate proceeds from all lunch specials (up to $20,000) to the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children, a local nonprofit with a mission to help Arizona families with the high costs and challenging logistics while caring for their children during cancer treatment.

Barro’s will also match donations made directly to the Arizona Cancer Foundation up to $20,000.

“It is important for us to help these local families as they go through very difficult times,” said Bruce Barro, owner of Barro’s Pizza. “When guests visit Barro’s Pizza in June, they will directly help their local community just by purchasing a lunch special. Then, through July, we will extend the summer of giving by matching donations made to ACFC.”

Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children was founded by Chrisie Funari after she lost her young daughter, Ava, to cancer. Funari traveled the country seeking the best treatments and care for her daughter, and strives to offer families similar opportunities by assisting with travel expenses and giving them peace of mind. Since launching, Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children has helped hundreds of families and wants to continue to grow that number.
