Steven Mignogna Joined Board of Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation

Steven K. Mignogna, a Partner and shareholder with Archer & Greiner P.C. in Haddonfield, N.J., has been named to the Board of Advisors of the Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation, which supports adolescents and teenagers hospitalized with cancer, and their families.

The Foundation was formed in 2002 in memory of Alicia Rose DiNatale of Voorhees, N.J., who died at age 17 from a rare form of childhood cancer. Through their grief, Alicia’s parents, Mario and Gisele, became determined to honor their daughter and other young people faced with critical illnesses. They met with other grieving parents, did research, and decided what to do: form a nonprofit to provide comfort and relief to teenagers and adolescents hospitalized with cancer and other serious diseases.

Since then, the Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation’s “Victorious-4-Teens” programs have helped more than 70,000 critically ill teens and their families during hospitalization. The Foundation has raised more than $2 million to fund 60 Teen Lounges, special rooms in hospitals where young patients can hang out, watch movies, listen to music, play video and other games and use computers. The Foundation has also distributed more than 11,000 “Teen Kits” to 98 hospitals in 37 states. These cinch-bag kits are filled with age-appropriate items for entertainment and creativity, including a Totally 4 Teens Activity Journal to record experiences. Learn more at www.arvf.org.

Mr. Mignogna, a resident of Voorhees, focuses his practice on commercial litigation, with a concentration on probate matters, estates, fiduciaries, guardianships and real estate.  He has lectured and published extensively both locally and nationally. Mr. Mignogna is principal author of the treatise, Estate and Trust Litigation, and editor and contributing author of The New Jersey Estate Planning Manual and The New Jersey Probate Procedures Book, all published by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.
