In memory of our son, Steve, who passed away from cancer on January 16, 1999, we have established the Stephen T. Marchello Scholarship Foundation.
We give post-secondary scholarships to current year high school graduates who are survivors of cancer. Currently we only give scholarships in Colorado and Montana.

It was through hockey that Steve Marchello would discover the condition called Ewing's sarcoma. It was through the cancer that he would learn to teach........
