Mel’s Magic

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. We have chosen The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health as our Mel’s Magic recipient. A portion of bracelet donations this month will be gifted to the center.

Our Supported Cancer Organization for March: The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health

The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health is a clinical center of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Named in honor of Jay Monahan – the late husband of Katie Couric, ABC News Contributor and Host of “Katie,” – the Monahan Center opened its doors officially on March 30, 2004. The center is a unique model of integrated care, focusing on prevention, screening, treatment, support, research and education for individuals who have or are at risk for developing gastrointestinal cancers.
