Gian Xavier Ortiz Memorial Fund

Established by Gian’s parents, Denishea and Orlando, and his brother, Esaias, this fund honors the life of a graduate of the Golisano Children’s Hospital NICU and was a resilient two-year-old who developed an admiration for books, “folding” bibs, and playing cars. The fund will support education and special health care initiatives for City of Rochester children.
