|The Foundation celebrates it's 15th Anniversary|
May 20, 2012 is our 15th anniversary.
This milestone for The Melonhead Foundation brings joy to our hearts. In 1997 a few friends and family members came together to chalk and sell "Melon Cards" for the fees to publish our corporation articles. These supporters then served as the first board of trustees as we received our non-profit status in 1998 and then began manifesting all of our intentions for the success of this unique pediatric cancer charity.
Today we have supported over 450 families and awarded upwards of $310,000 to our patients for financial, physical, emotional and mental support through our Patient Aid Assiatance packages and the Wannahealyah Wellness Center. This has been a collective effort from all of our many supporters, too many to name. But know today you are appreciated and remembered in your key roles creating each success of The Melonhead Foundation.
We have created an entity that was sorely needed and non-existant. Please know that when you benefit The Melonhead Foundation you are making a positive difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families on a very personal level.
Here's to even greater successes in the next 15 years. I am grateful.
