Melina Wachter Memorial Foundation

…helps children and their families in Colorado who have been affected by childhood cancer. We were able to help 71 families last year. We gave away $44,000.00.


13th Annual Fore Melina Golf Tournament is Monday, June 3, 2019!

So excited to announce


We want to introduce to you our 2018 Cancer Champion ~ Taylor Boyle!! We were able to give Taylor and her family an amazing gift of $5,000.00!!
Sadly and unexpectedly, Taylor passed away and became an angel on Wed, February 3, 2019. She was 2 years old.



The Comfy Cupboard is on the 7th floor in the BMT unit at Children's. It is for all families who might need some comfort from home! Thanks to donations through the years, we are able to continue to keep it fully stocked!

We have never experienced such a powerful display of love and generosity as you showed us. The story of your daughter touched us deeply. You were an angel, in more ways than one. You brought us hope again and reminded us that we aren’t alone.
