All Work and No Pay?

Making Headway Foundation is lucky to have many volunteers. They are always ready to help when asked, and frequently offer to help when not asked. Take the case of grateful patient families who want to help our Foundation so that others can benefit from our services the way they have benefited. Why do all this work for […]

From a Parent’s Perspective

Making Headway Foundation patient family member and long time volunteer, Peggy Fischer, wrote a beautiful article about her experience as a mother of a brain tumor patient.  Entitled, Hope in the Darkest Hour, and published in TheAlternativePress.com, her story is an inspiration to others.  We hope you will enjoy reading it. http://thealternativepress.info/columns/advocating-for-children/articles/hope-in-the-darkest-hour

What is giving?

Today is #GivingTuesday We all hear it.  Time and time again.  “What do I/you want for Christmas?”  What should I give?  Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday is today, GivingTuesday.  This is to remind us that it is better to give than receive and that there are always those who are less fortunate than we […]

3 weeks until #GivingTuesday. Here is what one parent said about the work of Making Headway Foundation. “Making Headway is a loving caring group of folks who always remember that our kids are just kids.
