The Women’s Council

The Women’s Council is a newly formed initiative at Family Reach. The Massachusetts-based women of this committee will serve as advisors and ambassadors to increase awareness and support of our mission and strategic vision. Council members’ expertise, guidance and achievements will bring about sustainable solutions that improve the lives of thousands of families experiencing the financial burden of cancer.


  • Create a Women’s Council mission and annual plan
  • Increase awareness of the organization’s mission, key initiatives and partnerships within New England
  • Support cultivation and stewardship efforts at internal and external events
  • Aid in the replication and expansion of the Women’s Council throughout the United States
