Review for Making Headway Foundation Inc, Chappaqua, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Making Headway Foundation goes far beyond foundations that are also raising money to do research with the hopes of finding a cure!

The emphasis on ' Quality of Life Issues' is superior. The foundation has formed an On-Going Care team to help families with many issues that they face with a child with a brain or spinal cord tumor. Beyond research and the importance of a cure The Making Headway Foundation places a great emphases on care for the chidren and their families both when they are hospitalized and when they return home.

Making Headway provides comfort supports during a child's hospitalization and also cares deeply about the child's family offering many comfoting services like massage therapy.

In addition when a child is able to return to home, services such as school planning, counseling for the family, therapy for the siblings and for the ill child and family are put in place. I have worked in healthcare for over 35 years and it is rare that a foundation considers 'on-going' care to be so important.

Kudos to the Board for making sure so many critical issues are supported by an amazing foundation!
