Making Headway Foundation is a wonderful organization that helps
support the patients and the families through numerous ways, from
supporting the playroom in the hospital to providing free of charge
educational counseling and other services to help with the ongoing
challenges many children face whether they are finished with treatment
or continue to need medical care. All have some type of issue they face, always, for the rest of their lives. In some cases, bereavement support and funeral expense assistance are provided as well. Not all families are as fortunate as ours.
Making Headway continues all these activities and in recent years has
expanded to meet their goal of providing support for more research to
help find a cure.
Making Headway continues all these activities and in recent years has expanded to meet their goal of providing support for more research to help find a cure. Care and treatments have improved dramatically over the years, so that more children survive. However, a cure would be better than just improved treatments. Therefore, continued support and increased research is needed.
Making Headway announced a $1 million commitment to provide seed money
to establish a new neuro-oncology laboratory at NYU Langone Medical
Due to the support of donors like you, they were able to make a $250,000 payment toward that grant shortly after the 2012 golf outing.
Additionally, they funded an additional $325,000 in grants to NYU for staff and research initiatives and also committed more than $275,000 to programs of care and comfort for patient families.
We hope you will join us to help support this incredible organization
at our 2nd annual golf outing on October 7 at Split Rock/Pelham Bay Golf Course in
We plan a day of fun, no special golf skills are required, just the desire to have a good time and support the cause.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The McCabe Family
