Michael Magro was a thirteen-year-old seventh grade student at Hicksville Middle School in Hicksville, New York, when he was diagnosed with leukemia (A.L.L.). He passed away within months of that diagnosis.

Michael, loved life, his family and friends. He smiled a lot and was considered a peacemaker with a zest for life and a passion for lacrosse and music; he cared more for others than he did for himself. Mike may not have been the best at everything but whatever he did, he gave it his all and never gave up. During his illness, his remarkable courage and strength were an inspiration to everyone who knew him.

The Michael Magro Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was established in January 2005 to honor Mike’s life. The efforts of the Foundation started with, the pediatric cancer patients and their families at the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop-University Hospital as well as to other Winthrop pediatric specialties where the treatment of chronic diseases is ongoing because that is where Mike was treated for his leukemia.

Additionally, the Foundation awards two scholarships each year; One an academic and sports scholarship is awarded, through the Hicksville High School Scholarship program to a student excelling in academics and sports; the other is a culinary scholarship endowed for a senior entering Culinary School.
