Swirls Around the World Foundation, honoring the life of Matthew Cirelli, embraces his spirit and courage as it helps children and young adults battling cancer.The foundation was created in honor of Matthew “Swirls” Cirelli, who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma at age 17 and passed away in 2013 at the age of 19. Along with being an incredible son, brother, friend, cousin, nephew and student, he was alsoi our hero. Matt’s family has made it their mission to carry on his legacy so that they may help other children and young adults battling cancer. Swirls around the World Foundation is a continuation of Matt’s story to…… …Travel the world. Matt had a love for travel, exploring new places and a desire to someday visit places around the world. One part of the foundation distributes Swirls Strong bracelets, which were made by Matt before his passing. People are encouraged to take the bracelets with them on their travels and take a Swirls picture at their favorite place. Pictures can be emailed to [email protected] to be added to the Swirls Around the World Facebook page and Instagram so everyone can enjoy following all the places Matt continues to travel. Swirls has already traveled along with friends and family to over 400 destinations and 6 continents! A beautiful reminder that Matt’s spirit lives on everywhere we go and to raise awareness of childhood and young adult cancers. …Go to college. The foundation organizes several fundraising events each year to raise funds for annual scholarships in Matt’s name for high school seniors helping to pursue Matthew’s dream of attending college. …Pay it forward. Each year the foundation recognizes a child or young adult battling Ewing’s Sarcoma as our Swirls Around the World MVP, organizing a special day to honor the courage, strength and hope of each warrior, while remembering Matthew’s life mantra of family, friends, faith and giving to others.
