This Mother’s Day, we are filled with gratitude as we celebrate the incredible moms in our community. We have been there as they’ve held their child’s hand through every turn of their cancer journey and celebrated each victory along the way. Their strength and capacity for empathy are truly remarkable.
In honor of Wellness Month, we want to highlight Kenji Freedman. Kenji is the founder of our Reach Athletes program and an individual who believes in wellness as a life philosophy and a way to help those in need. Learn about his #ChooseHappy campaign and how he continues to raise money for families battling cancer.
To continue our volunteer blog series, we are excited to highlight Jean Monopoli. Jean is a proud Women's Council member and Family Reach volunteer. In addition to the council meetings Jean attends, she regularly visits our Boston-based office to lend a hand wherever needed.
Nicole Ackerman and her brother, Peter Merrigan, strive for greatness every single day as they make family connections and push limits to bring our mission to life. Together, they are a powerful duo fighting to change the face of cancer and we are proud to have them representing Family Reach.
This Social Work Month, Family Reach is honoring our dedicated team of social workers for the important role they play in the lives of both families fighting cancer and the healthcare professionals that stand by each family’s side. We partner with over 400 social workers across the country to understand each family’s unique needs as they navigate the financial side of a cancer diagnosis.
