We are excited to announce that the Friends of Mel Foundation recently received a matching grant of $45,000 as a result of our participation in the national Pink Well Challenge! The Lester and Sue Smith Foundation had selected Friends of Mel as one of only 30 cancer support organizations throughout the country, to raise funds over a period of several months. If we met our goal, the Smith Foundation would award a matching grant. We’re very grateful to our contributors and Lester and Sue Smith for making this possible.
The funds will be used to bring evidence-based cancer rehabilitation medicine to Massachusetts hospitals and cancer centers through the STAR Program® Certification which advances cancer care for all cancer survivors in Massachusetts.
