The McDonough Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping local cancer patients and their families. Examples of their efforts include: purchasing a used automobile for a family that otherwise was unable to get to and from chemo treatments, arranging for a cleaning service to clean a home while the patient was ill, providing wigs after hair loss, assisting in household bills while patients were unable to work, and much more. Donations to the McDonough foundation make a tangible difference in the life of a cancer patient.
