James and Barbara Mondello Cancer Center Research Fund

Fund Purpose
GA(amended): Support competitively awarded research grants in the areas of lymphoma and leukemia, such as research into "Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma".

This fund was established by James and Barbara Mondello in 2004 for the purpose of supporting research in the University of Florida Shands Cancer Center.

Although the Mondellos did not graduate from the University of Florida, their connection to the University, especially UF’s Shands Cancer Center, is strong because they are cancer survivors.

James first contacted Stratford May, director of the center, five years ago when his son fell and broke his neck. James’ friend Allen Lastinger referred him to the center. James went to May for advice again in August 2004 when he was diagnosed with lung cancer. All the Mondellos are doing well now.

The Mondellos are both retired and living in Palm City. James retired in 1998 from Barnett Bank, now Bank of America, as regional bank executive out of Fort Lauderdale.
