The founders of NOGU all have been touched by Cancer personally. Mario & Luca Lavorato, both born with CF among other struggles, endured the anxiety and uncertainty of their mother's two separate battles with - and victories over – Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Mario & Luca also lost both their grandparents to cancer at an early age and have seen the effects of it throughout their family. For them it is much to prevalent a story. Michael Scarfo, COO, watched his father overcome mouth cancer, and couldn't be more glad to see him healthy and in remission.
“ We are absolutely thrilled to be working with CCS and having an opportunity to give back to a community that is fighting to eradicate one of the worst diseases out there. We’ve witnessed firsthand the toll cancer takes on a family as our mother fought through two bouts of cancer when we were young. It was a terrifying experience for all of us. We’re proud to be able to support such an incredible organization now that we have the means to as business owners and entrepreneurs.” Said Mario Christian Lavorato, co-Founder NOGU
