Flo Tempalski was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, a grade IV brain tumor on October 31, 2006 and passed on October 7, 2007. Flo was 50 years of age with two children and three grandchildren. She was a loving part of our life, my sister and a lifelong best friend.

The Annual Flo's Chili Cook‐Off honors Flo by keeping her memory alive with a joyful celebration of her life. All donations and proceeds will benefit the JFK Brain Tumor Center, a comprehensive program for diagnosis, treatment, and management of brain and spinal tumors. To learn more click here.

Flo's experience with the disease was more than courageous – she sustained four major brain surgeries, and two dual spinal infections within six months of her diagnosis. She never let the disease stop her, her commitment and dedication to her family, friends, and community persisted regardless of her illness. Never complaining about her illness or the complications associated with it – Flo always stayed positive. Flo's grace, dignity, courage and love carried family and friends through the most difficult times of her illness. She was so special – Flo touched the life of everyone that knew her.

Through fundraising events, like the Chili Cook‐Off, we want to keep Flo's loving and giving spirit alive by raising funds to support education and patient related services at the JFK Brain Tumor Center. For further details, please visit the event website www.floschilicookoff.com

To date Flo's Chili Cook‐Off has raised over $20,000 ‐‐ money raised last year helped brain tumor patients pay for MRI's, insurance co‐pays and transportation for chemotherapy treatment. To become a participant or sponsor the chili cook-off please use the forms below. Thank you in advance for you support of this worthy cause!

JFK Medical Center Foundation Miles for Minds 5K A Huge Success

 
 

More than 500 participants braved the morning sun in Roosevelt Park last Sunday for the 3rd Annual JFK Foundation Miles for Minds 5K and Fun Run/Walk. Runners and walkers alike received the official start signal from the Mayor of Edison Antonia Ricigliano. Other special guest runners/walkers included Freeholder Charles Tomaro and Councilman Tom Lankey.

 
 

Fundraising efforts by the JFK Medical Center Foundation benefit the JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute’s Center for Head Injuries. The Center for Head Injuries is nationally known as a pioneer in brain trauma evaluation and treatment. The Center restores real-life skills to those with head injuries so that they may return to their families and communities at the maximum level possible. Event proceeds will help purchase equipment and expand programs.
