In addition to the Miracles from Maggie 501(c)(3) , our family created the Miracles from Maggie Fund with the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County, part of the Pittsburgh Foundation. We “pay it forward” on Maggie’s behalf by partnering with the following well established foundations:
Children’s Hospital Of Pittsburgh Foundation
Supportive Care Program
The extraordinary doctors and nurses in this department befriended Maggie and our family during our journey and lovingly helped us navigate tough decisions. A permanent Miracles from Maggie endowed fund offers ongoing support for the team and the innovative palliative care and bereavement program.
With the help of this foundation , Maggie enjoyed a ski vacation to Stowe, Vermont with her family in January, 2012. She was able to forget about being sick for awhile. Donations to this organization provide treasured experiences for other children.
Nickers ‘n Neighs And R.I.D.E.
We honor Maggie’s great love of horses and riding by supporting two therapeutic riding programs.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation And St. Baldrick’s Foundation
Less than 5% of federal funding goes towards childhood cancer research. These foundations raise awareness and offer grants to target pediatric cancer research and treatment protocols.
