The Croman family recently raised $26,484.45 with the help of their friends and family for Frankie’s Friends Ronald O. Thomas Foundation challenge. Today, they ask that you donate for “Giving Tuesday.” Please make your donation by clicking the Giving Tuesday tab at top of Frankie’s Friends homepage!


The Eddie Croman Heart & Kidney Fund was created by the Croman family in memory of their special pup, Eddie, a Jack Russell terrier, who lived past his 17th birthday! He was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat, for which he received a pacemaker and medication that helped normalize his heartbeat.

Eddie was little, but mighty, and he won everyone’s heart.

The Eddie Croman Fund assists pets with heart and/or kidney disease, whose families cannot afford the cost of treatment.

Frankie’s Friends, the umbrella organization above Eddie Croman Fund:

Frankie’s Friends is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other life threatening conditions. We save pets’ lives by providing grants to help with the cost of life-saving or life-enhancing emergency or specialty care for pets whose families cannot afford the full cost of treatment.

These grants are provided through “Hope Funds” that are set up in each state.

In New York, thanks to the incredible support and generosity of the Croman family, we call the “Hope Fund” the “Eddie Croman Fund” to honor their beloved pet, Eddie, as we help to save pets in that state.

The Eddie Croman Fund isn’t separate from Frankie’s Friends, it’s just another name for the “Hope Fund” in that particular state. All of the donations are made to and processed by Frankie’s Friends as we hold the 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit status with the IRS.
