The Menorah Park Mandel Adult Day Center and Menorah Park's child care center FUNdamentals hosted a Dance-A-Thon Friday to raise money for the Carter Nedley Foundation, a charity for children with cancer.
The foundation serves and advocates for children diagnosed with cancer and supports pediatric cancer research.
Carter Nedley was diagnosed with cancer and died at age two. His mother, Lisa Nedley, works at Menorah Park and started the foundation shortly thereafter to help other children with leukemia.
"The CNF is a non-profit that goes deeper than just giving a check to other non-profits; they go straight to the patients and their families," Menorah Park spokesperson Sherry Gavanditti writes. "They help with the day to day struggles of families who must frequent the cancer rooms of hospitals with their sick children and their siblings; from delivered hot lunches, patient and sibling birthday parties, parking vouchers, toys, games and entertainment, and much, much, more, they find ways to help."
The Carter Nedley Foundation will host a Night at the Mansion gala in May. Find out more here.
