In Honor of Larry Spallanzani

Created by Lauren Lentz

Larry Spallanzani

After fighting Multiple Myeloma for nearly 6 years, our beloved Husband, Dad, Granpa and Papa, Larry Spallanzani lost his battle on November 4, 2017.

The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation played an instrumental role in the development of new treatments and provided education and hope for Larry throughout his fight against cancer.

Cookin' Cancer Away is named in honor of Larry who heroically battled Multiple Myeloma cancer since 2012. Taking inspiration from his fight, we are committed to doing our part in finding a cure for Multiple Myeloma.

In lieu of flowers, we are asking for donations to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF). Your donation will help the foundation continue its progress in offering hope so that one day other families will not have to go through the pain and suffering of this terrible disease.

Please help us honor our hero, Larry, while making a difference to others who fight multiple myeloma.

With HOPE we will find a way!

With Love,
The Spallanzani Family
