Mission Statement

Every day, the lives of women and girls are threatened by menstrual Toxic Shock Syndrome (mTSS) due to tampon use and the lack of education regarding the associated risks, dangers, signs, and symptoms of this serious and preventable illness. Our mission is to make the world safer for our daughters, sisters, friends, wives, and more! Our foundation has been making a difference worldwide from speaking engagements and articles in international publications, to working with legislators creating bills that change women's healthcare. We will not rest until women have been empowered with the necessary, life-saving educational materials to help prevent complications and needless deaths from mTSS.

Description

Madalyn "Maddy" Massabni was given her angel wings on March 30th, 2017, at the age of 19, following an unexpected battle with menstrual T oxic Shock Syndrome (mTSS). Since her passing, her mother Dawn & brother George have dedicated their lives to spreading awareness & creating impactful legislative change around mTSS education in NJ through the Madalyn Massabni Foundation for Toxic Shock Awareness.
We have grown exponentially over the years & are currently looking for volunteers to assist in various areas to help us level up! We host 2 fantastic fundraisers annually, The Butterflies for Maddy Fashion Show & The Don't Shock Me Flag Football Tournament. We are always looking for volunteers on the day of these events, but more recently, we are looking for assistance in event planning & coordination to allow Board Members time to work on the ever growing paperwork involved in running a nonprofit; scheduling speaking engagements; communicating with survivors &victims; researching products, companies & laws; and the seemingling endless push for meaningful legislation to be passed, both on the State level, & Federally. We have a variety of positions & hours available for volunteers, both short & long term. Once you hear from Dawn and our Board, you will feel how big of an impact this foundation will have!
