MOmentum Organization has been busy this year providing for the needs of breast cancer patients:
- 1) We have provided over 36 rides to medical appointments and various treatments.
- 2) We have paid more than $1900.00 in bills for breast cancer patients. Many of these patients were referred to MOmentum Organization through a social worker at The Cleveland Clinic.
- 3) We donated $1500.00 to Journey of Hope to assist breast cancer patients.
- 4) We donated $1500.00 to the American Cancer Society to help women fighting breast cancer. American Cancer Society has listed MOmentum Organization on their website so patients can request assistance from us.
All of us at MOmentum Organization would like to thank each one of you for supporting this cause. We appreciate your continued interest in The Maureen T. O’Brien Golf Memorial Scramble, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year!
Golfers will take to the links at 9:04 a.m. Sept. 24 at the Sweetbriar golf course in Avon Lake for the fourth annual Maureen T. O’Brien Golf Scramble in honor of St. Raphael School and Magnificat High School graduate Maureen O’Brien, who died in November 2007 after a 15-year battle with breast cancer.
All proceeds from the event will go to MOmentum Organization, a non-profit started in O’Brien’s memory by three fellow Magnificat alumnae, Celeste Kane, Colleen O’Brien and Patty Abraham.
MOmentum provides lawn care, house cleaning, medical transportation and light home maintenance to women battling breast cancer.
“Unfortunately, Mo’s life ended at her home in Avon, but her spirit will live on in the women our non-profit services,” Kane said.
If you’d like to golf, but haven’t signed up to participate, it is still not too late. They will take walk-in registrations.
If you would like to contribute to the cause, but are not a golfer, donations (of services as well as of financial support) are always welcome.
Finally, if you know of a woman battling breast cancer who could use a little help getting things done around the home, MOmentum would love to be of assistance.
