A Boost to an Important Cause
Being featured on “Katie” has brought much attention to our worthy cause and to the empowerment of the cancer survivorship movement. Since 2006, Mel’s Bracelet™ has become a symbol of friendship, support, love, and community among individuals who have been impacted by cancer. Thousands of Mel’s Bracelets are being worn by women who are committed to making a difference in the cancer community. (Read about our story).
March Mel’s Magic Recipient
In March, which is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, the Friends of Mel Foundation has chosen The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health as the recipient of their monthly Mel’s Magic award. A portion of all donations during March will be gifted to the Center, which was named in honor of Jay Monahan, the late husband of Katie Couric. The Center is leading the way in prevention, screening, treatment, support, research, and education for individuals who have or at risk of developing gastrointestinal cancers.
