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!

After benefiting from the Foundation we decided to become volunteers and we hold an annual fundraiser to support the Foundation's mission.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help spread the word about this amazing organization far and wide to gain additional support.

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.

I did not personally experience the results of MelonHead because I am neither a child with cancer or a family member with a child who is ill. I can say that I have witnessed many who have benefited from the support MelonHead offers.

I am hard pressed to make any suggested changes. In my opinion this organization is clearly organized better many of the larger ones. MelonHead had a vision, knows what they are doing and never strays from their original mission.

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.

I have personally witnessed the difference Melonhead has made in the lives of these children and families. So many of these families come back to be volunteers and life-long friends of the Foundation!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get the word out all over the U.S. and the world about Melonhead!

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

relieving the financial burden for families of kids with cancer by paying for housing, utilities, auto expenses, medical bills and holisitc healing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing...except find millions of dollars for them...they would put it to such good use!
