The Melonhead Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports the needs of children with cancer and their families.
The Foundation has a threefold purpose:
- To provide financial aid to families of children 21 years of age or younger, with any diagnosis of cancer. We have awarded payment for housing, insurance, utilities, food, medical expenses and natural healing such as acupuncture, massage, and naturopaths when requested.
- To provide a resource center for all patients experiencing cancer and searching for alternative practices.
- To provide Holistic Services to our patients as a compliment to their western protocols and for family members, promoting emotional, mental and physical well beingness
The Wannahealyah Wellness Center opened February 1, 2011 in Tempe, AZ. The Center was a successful 3-year project. Holistic Specialists provided their services to our families and kids free of charge.Modalities included Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Naturopathics, Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT), Massage, Yoga, Reiki, Cranial Sacral Alignment, Family Counseling, Meditation and Emotional Trauma Release Therapy. Our wellness techniques support healing on all levels; treating body, mind and soul.
On January 31, 2014 the Wannahealyah Wellness Center was completed. It was a great success and an innovative model, promoting wellness for pediatric cancer patients and educating our families on the benefits of Natural Medicine. The center gave birth to a new program. The Melonhead Foundation now has a network of Holistic Professionals offering their services free of charge to our Melonhead Families within their private practices. We are grateful to these specialists and welcome new comers wishing to serve the community.
