Cupcakes for HOPE

This is Madelyn. She is 11 years old and was diagnosed at the age of 9 with Leukemia. While still fighting her fight, she wanted to do something to give back to the community that rallied around her and her family when they needed it most.

She LOVES to bake and has been lucky enough to team up with owner, Jess from Cake That in Manahawkin to do just that.cancer

For every “Golden Salted Caramel” cupcake that is sold in the month of September, $1 will be donated to David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation, who in turn will donate 100% of the proceeds to a local child diagnosed with cancer.

A special thank you to our amazing 11 year old Madelyn, who inspires and motivates all of us on a daily basis. Thank you to Maddy’s mom Vicki, Jess from Cake that and Dawn Simon from Swing Graphics for all your support to make this fundraiser and Childhood Cancer Awareness campaign possible!

WHY? From: Cara Samantha

In 2013 my cousin Jamie passed away at just 35 years old from Stage 4 Breast Cancer leaving behind her husband Glenn and three delightfully inquisitive kids Kyle, Alyssa and Brandon, all under 8yrs old. Luckily, David’s involvement in Jamie’s journey allowed us to have a wonderful party celebrating Jamie before she passed. She was showered in love and kindness from over 250 family members, friends and strangers. We also managed to raise about $30,000 for her and her family in her final days. David Caldarella was an integral part in making this happen and we are all forever grateful.

Just one month after Jamie left us, her brother Brian was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL). Multiple trips back and forth from NJ to Sloan Kettering, hospital stays, hotel overnights, treatment and more make for some hefty bills and luckily David stepped right in again to offer as much assistance as he could. Jamie and Brian are just two people from one family. One family who means the world to me, but one family that even David’s foundation can only do so much for. He is constantly helping people of all ages fighting all kinds of cancer find hope in their struggle by easing some of their financial burdens and giving them a little more light in their life. The more money we can raise for David’s foundation, the more families he can help thrive.


Please join us in NYC as we raise money to give back to a wonderful foundation whose mission brings hope and happiness to families fighting cancer in the New Jersey area. If you are unable to attend, please consider donating any amount and helping us spread the word.
