The Fight Like Frank Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to celebrating and remembering the life of Francis Gessler while helping to support and raise awareness for various charitable organizations. The Fight Like Frank Foundation will also present several scholarships for kids who have fought through and overcame adversity in their life.
The Fight Like Frank Foundation was established by the Gessler family to honor the memory of their beloved Francis, who passed away from a brain aneurysm on September 16, 2011. Frank was just 30-years old.
In his passing, Frank saved others by donating his organs through the Gift of Life Foundation. Of the 2 million people who die nationally each year, only 1 percent of them are suitable to be an organ donor, however only 50% of those families will say yes. The Fight Like Frank Foundation strives to stress the importance and need for organ donation, while raising recognition and awareness for the Gift of Life Foundation.
The Fight Like Frank Foundation will also host a yearly benefit which will benefit various charitable organizations, and celebrating the life of Francis Gessler.
