When our three year old daughter was undergoing cancer treatment, The Melonhead Foundation stepped in to help us out financially. Deb Leone is incredibly compassionate and we're forever thankful for the level of help we received. The Melonhead Foundation is an amazing grass roots organization with extremely dedicated people!

MelonHead is an organization with heart, integrity and a passion to help those in need. This organization recognizes that people today are seeking holistic methods which complement allopathic medicine.
It is refreshing to know that they are willing to support and help fund these requests.

There are not enough words to express the largeness of Deb Leone, this foundation and the many children/families she and this organization touches. Several years ago I ran across MelonHead Foundation while seaching for a official charity for my my Healing Center. Although other organizations did not have the time to respond to a small business owner, I received a personal e-mail from Deb within 24 hours. She was delighted to receive any contribution of any size. MelonHead remains true to this ideal today.

Watching this organization grow and prosper under the careful, dedicated direction of this woman with a vision, has been an inspiration to all.

Bottom line, Deb Leone is a not only a trustworthy, reliable expert in this area. She is leader who cares deeply about her work, the foundation, and the people she supports.

The Melonhead Foundation has touched so many lives. We have great examples of families and children who have been forever changed by their experience. Now we have been able to establish the Wannahealyah Wellness Center to assist cancer patients and their families in dealing with their situation and adding to any Western protocols they may be undergoing. By treating the entire family through counseling, Chinese medicine, positive visualization, etc. it reduces stress and aids healing. We offer laughter therapy sessions and many other courses for FREE to help out during these rough periods for our patient families.

The Melonhead Foundation is a unique pediatric cancer charity and meets a need that is vital to the families in our community. This group is fun and enthusiastic while dealing with such a tragic illness. Everyone involved with the foundation is an inspiration by their dedication and committment. This organization raises it's own funds through special events and increases public awareness with each one. The focus on financial support for pediatric cancer patients and families fills a great need not being met and the compliment of alternative medicine for the families at no charge is leading edge. It is an honor to be affiliated.
