In Holiday Guide

Help find a cure for childhood cancer while also celebrating Christmas cheer!

The MACC Fund holiday season is here

Christmas and the holidays are here. Embrace them, relish this festive time of the year and – most importantly – dig deep to give back and connect with our community. It's what we're all called to do.

I've been a passionate supporter of the MACC Fund for years, and now I'm engaged in some new outreach and board level efforts, so I thought I'd use this space today to update on everything that this wonderful organization has on its plate in December. Dive in, share and give back however you can. The kids need you, since raising money for childhood cancer and blood disorders research is truly important. Through the research you're supporting, you will be helping give one of the most important gifts to many children and families this year hope!
