Real Housewives Star Teresa Giudice to Support NephCure at Last of Three Winter Fundraisers

(Updated on March 8, 2013)

Teresa Giudice, of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame, is a long-time supporter of The NephCure Foundation. In her latest effort to support the kidney nonprofit, Teresa plans to appear at or host three events in the New Jersey/New York area in the coming weeks.

Teresa’s involvement with The NephCure Foundation stems from her support for Matthew Levine of Long Island, who was diagnosed with FSGS at age 3. She met Matthew through his parents, Dana and Michael Levine while at an Eric Trump Golf Event. Since the event, Giudice has supported NephCure whenever possible. Through her accomplishments on The Celebrity Apprentice, Teresa won $60,000 for NephCure. In November 2012, she was a guest speaker at the foundation’s annual New York fundraiser, Countdown to a Cure.

The NephCure Foundation is the only organization solely committed to seeking a cause and cure for Nephrotic Syndrome and Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS).  Comprised of patients, their families and friends, researchers, physicians and other healthcare professionals, NephCure aims to help science unlock the biological mechanisms that cause these serious conditions and ultimately find a way to cure and prevent them.
