Spread The Love
We understand the financial burden that comes along when a loved one is diagnosed with ALS and the MBB Foundation is here to help.
About the Foundation
WHO WE ARE:
The Mary Beth Benison Foundation, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, run by volunteer staff. The primary mission of the foundation is to provide financial assistance to ALS patients and families. In addition, we provide financial assistance to people with cancer and other serious illnesses.
Over a 15 year period Mary Beth overcame numerous health challenges but in 2014 she was diagnosed with two terminal illnesses, mesothelioma and ALS. Her ability to fight and remain strong through this devastating news was inspiring to many. Mary Beth often expressed how grateful she was to have the support of family and friends. She had tremendous compassion and knew how difficult it was when dealing with an illness and she wanted to find a way to help. The foundation was started as a way to continue her legacy of kindness, love and compassion.
WHAT WE DO:
The Mary Beth Benison Foundation grants typically provide assistance for the following expenses:
