about the Anthony rizzo family foundation:

The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by
Chicago Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo. Anthony realized during his own battle with cancer
that no matter how difficult fighting cancer was for him, it was even more difficult for his
family. Anthony believes that an individual does not battle cancer alone, but that the whole
family battles it together. The mission of the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is to raise
money to provide financial support to the families of children battling the disease.
