Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation
The Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation was established with the hope of making a difference in the world of childhood cancer. Megan was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia when she was 10 years old. She fought bravely, but unfortunately lost her battle a year and a half later on June 5, 2008.
There were many organizations that had a major impact on Megan’s life as she battled cancer, and that helped her family during these difficult times. Megan’s family wanted to start a foundation to give back to these organizations. Each September, the Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation hosts a bike ride/walk called “Miles for Megan” to help raise money for these organizations.
To date, The Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation has raised over $200,000 to contribute to: The Tomorrow Fund, Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, Flashes of Hope, Floating Children’s Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, The Neely House, Binkeez for Comfort, and Hope Hospice & Palliative Care RI-Camp BraveHeart.
By donating to these organizations, the Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation is fulfilling its promise to help others who are affected by childhood cancer.
If you would like to donate more, please make checks payable to: The Megan L. Cordeiro Memorial Foundation, c/o John and Teresa Cordeiro, 19 Blueberry Lane, Tiverton, RI 02878.
If there is a need in the community that you would like us to help in the future,
