A Message from Madeline Fiadini LoRe

 

Health Care. It's the hot topic on many of our minds. More people are unemployed. The numbers are staggering. It is not surprising that elective screenings are among the first "luxuries" to be cut from a family's household budget. Unfortunately this decision could be catastrophic if a preventable cancer results from a test or screening not taken.

 

As a three time cancer survivor it is my passion to prevent as many cancers as I possibly can. Sometimes all it takes is a simple test. Not having the money to pay for such a test is no longer a viable excuse.

 

The Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation for Cancer Prevention was established specifically to address those individuals. At the very first MFL Foundation Board meeting, our Board recognized a need in the community. Our mission has focused on fulfilling this void with access to free Colonoscopies, Mammographies, Onoscopies, Colposcopies, and Skin Cancer screenings.

 

With our diligent Board of Trustees, we have set policy for eligibility and access to the tests/screenings. Funding to support our efforts comes from grants, donations and from several fundraising events throughout the year, including our ANNUAL GALA.

 

The task before us is monumental but we believe we can make headway, one case at a time. It only takes one person to tell a friend about us. You may be saving their life.
