Ronniee-Marie Ruggiero is the founder of Erik's Way, a charity organization that brings hope and happiness to children and families impacted by cancer.
She is an educator for LAUSD and is passionate about literacy and community service. During her spare time she enjoys reading, paper crafting, baking, spending time with family and friends, and watching football.
Erik's Way was founded in 2020 to not only honor Erik's memory and to inspire and support the children and families in the cancer community, but to also bring her passions of literacy, community service, and baking together. These passions shine with their books and baked goods program, the holiday drive for gingerbread houses, their Mother's Day/Father's Day shopping experience, and the collaborations with local schools in LAUSD.
Erik's Way is truly working to make sure that families experiencing the trauma of cancer know they are not alone.
