The Willow Project

Proceeds of the children's festival will benefit The Willow Project.

The Willow Project is a community fund in Greenwich, CT, launched in 2017 after the diagnosis of Lynn Willow Gulli. The mission of The Willow Project is to harness the power of community to provide support for local families battling childhood cancer.

All funds raised go towards supporting families through the critical time of cancer diagnosis and initial treatment by absorbing some of the financial burdens brought on by the diagnosis, enabling the family to focus on the recovery of their loved one.

No family should have to face this alone. Since 2017, The Willow Project has raised over $75,000 to support the Gulli family through Lynn's first year of treatment. The Willow Project hopes to continue to raise funds to help local families of children battling cancer.

The Greenwich community is known for its generosity, philanthropy and family values. The Willow Project is grateful for all of its supporters. For a list of sponsors, visit our sponsor page.

The Willow Project is a subsidiary of the Innovadores Foundation, a Connecticut 501(c)(3) organization.

Lynn's Story

Lynn Willow Gulli is a quintessential 7-year old – the perfect combination of sassy, fearless and tender kindhearted soul.

On Sunday, April 23rd 2017, Lynn's life was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After 3 to 4 weeks of not feeling well (+strep throat, fevers, lethargy, etc.) Lynn’s mom, Cindy, requested blood work through her local Greenwich pediatrician which alarmingly revealed an extremely low blood count of both red and white blood cells as well as platelets. Cindy and Lynn’s father, Rocco, rushed to Julian Curtiss Elementary School where Lynn was attending an ordinary day in her 2nd grade class, and drove her to Yale New Haven Children's Hospital. Lynn was immediately admitted that Friday, April 21st, had a bone marrow aspiration (from her hip) on Saturday, and her diagnosis was confirmed by Sunday. Within two days, a port was implanted and an aggressive chemotherapy cocktail was started.

After one year of intensive treatment, Lynn Willow Gulli is now in remission! She still has 2 more years of treatment at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital but has been able to go back to school and participate in limited activities (a win for us all!). We have no doubt that Lynn will continue to fight this fight with tremendous strength and a big heart.
