Family continues son’s legacy through nonprofit 4Troy Foundation
BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – The local 4Troy Foundation says they’re stepping up to the plate to help families and kids battling cancer.
The 4Troy Foundation was created in memory of Troy Haynes who passed away last year from cancer. Haynes was a two-time state championship-winning quarterback at Woodbridge High School in Greenwood, Delaware.
The foundation says they’re planning to offer mentorship opportunities for student-athletes and want to raise awareness about Renal Medullary Carcinoma.
“We wanted to make sure that 4Troy Foundation was for Troy, making sure that his legacy is continued and that we’re able to help as many people as possible and that’s something that we’re striving to do each and every day,” said Chase Marvil, a board member at the 4Troy Foundation.
The foundation says they’re also planning to offer temporary housing for families fighting cancer. Their goal is to help these families so that they aren’t worried about keeping a roof over their heads during such a challenging time.
