The Tufts event on October 28th was fantastic. I wanted to take an opportunity to thank the companies
that provided wonderful items for the gift bags. One company that made a very generous donation was Friends of Mel. Friends of Mel donated 50 bracelets to the gift bags.
I was honored to receive a donation from such a wonderful foundation. Friends of Mel was created to continue the great work started by Mel Simmons. Mel died of breast cancer in 2005, after a five year battle. A little about Mel from the Friends of Mel website:
Mel was a spiritual woman of legendary generosity and boundless energy. Humor was her trademark. She managed to turn every crisis into an opportunity. In 2000, Mel was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. At the time, she learned that the cancer had spread to 24 lymph nodes and her prognosis was not good. It was then that she began a five year journey that would test her to the core.
Please stop by Friends of Mel to learn more about their wonderful work. Buy a bracelet and support their cause! Thank you very much to Melissa and Pauline at Friends of Mel for your generous gift. All the best to you.
