More about Frank…

after his battle with testicular cancer, Frank really wanted to do something to help others stay positive throughout their challenging treatments and overcome the disease. So, he created Ballsfest, an Arizona-based non-profit organization dedicated to raising the spirits of children, young adults, and their families affected by all forms of cancer. Frank named the organization “Ballsfest” to inspire other cancer fighters to maintain a hopeful and determined mindset even in the most difficult times. Since he founded Ballsfest in 2013, Frank has provided over 75 young cancer battling warriors, or “Ballers” as they are called, with spectacular, personalized gifts and experiences. He has grown the organization to seven states (AZ, NV, CA, AL, FL, NY, NJ) and although he is based in Arizona, and is a full-time financial advisor with Merrill Lynch, Frank travels to each of those states and visits with every Baller several times, cultivating personal lifelong relationships with them and their families.
