In memory of Philip, we are establishing a foundation called A Little Light Foundation. Philip spent many weeks at a time in the hospital throughout his journey. He found a sense of peace from a little lamp that traveled with him from room to room. Its warm glow allowed him to turn off the harsh hospital lights and make his room feel a little more like home. It seems like such a little thing, but its impact was great. It is our goal to spread Philip’s light to as many long term cancer patients as possible.
Philip, you are our wish come true!
We loved you before you were born and will love you always. You are right, our family was written
in the stars by God. When we look up to the stars, we can feel you looking back at us and
shining your beautiful light.
Philip, we remember every moment
with you and know how very blessed we are
that God gave us YOU!
Your smile lights the world and your heart fills
the world with love. You live on through each
of us and everyone you touched.
Philip, You are kind, you are brave, you are strong.
You have a beautiful heart that thinks of others before yourself. Only a man with the purest heart would thank God for his 26 years on this earth.
You will live on always;
Your light will shine eternally!
You helped us fulfill Philip's wish! Your donations came in at $10,017! We are grateful to each of you! We are working out the logistics with the hospital and will be lighting up Patients' days very soon. Thank you!

Philip taught us that life should not be measured in years, but in moments. He cherished every moment he was blessed with and faced every challenge with immeasurable bravery and positivity.
Philip is the first of 3 brothers. He was a role model from the start looking out for his brothers and teaching them everything. Philip was a talented runner from a young age and the biggest NJ Devils fan ever. He graduated from Northeastern University in Boston with a Finance and Marketing degree and landed his dream job at SV Health Investors. He was a creative soul who appreciated the simple things in life. He loved to play his guitar. He also loved the beach and sunny days. He didn't like NJ winters so he moved to Austin, Texas. There, he loved to walk under the night sky full of stars. He shared that he truly believes his family was written in the stars.
Even during intensive treatments, Philip thought of others before himself. He came up the the idea of A Little Light Foundation and he and his mom created the logo together. He knew his dad would come up with a way to make it happen. Philip hoped to be delivering these gifts himself so his brothers Bayley and Tyler along with his dad and I will deliver them for him. Every gift delivered will keep Philip's spirit shining bright.
