Mission Statement

The Melonhead Foundation supports the needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families providing financial assistance, physical, emotional and mental support through our programs at the Wannahealyah Wellness Center in Tempe, AZ.

Our Holistic Services are provided free of charge to children 21 years of age or younger with any diagnosis of cancer and their family members.

Description

The Melonhead Foundation is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization. Created in 1997 by Deb Leone in memory of her daughter Melanie who died from leukemia in 1992. The foundation is a small, intimate group of family and friends working to create a difference in the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. We grant financial support to children 21 years of age or younger with a diagnosis of cancer. We give financial aid for any need the family deems necessary to ease their process. Thus far we have made house/rent payments for families traveling away for bone marrow transplants, paid utilities, food and gas bills, bought backyard play equipment, computers, and paid for natural healing, to name a few. The foundation raises these funds with special events and donations. Each spring we host a pro am golf tournament, in summer we have a mail out event, and in fall we host an evening of art & entertainment. We apply for grant money and we network where ever we go. Ultimately the foundation will build Camp Wannahealyah, a healing center in a camp setting which will teach and implement natural healing modalities to pediatric cancer patients and their families. We are an international organization with a home base in Arizona. We assist patients from any of the 50 United States and are allowed to assist other countries as well.
