We want to share this with you all, and congratulate Robyn Goldman who is walking to help find a cure for Breast Cancer… and helping to keep Robert Melillo´s memory always alive. Thanks Robyn, Robert Melillo Foundation will support you in any way we know!
This is the press release:
Thanks for visiting my Avon Walk page! I’ve committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I’ll be walking 39.3 miles over 2 days. It’s a big commitment, but it’s worth it if it will help people affected and fund research to find a cure.
In addition to all the other people suffering or surviving from this disease, I’m walking on behalf of one of my dearest friends. Bob was diagnosed with breast cancer (yep, men get it too) about 2 years ago. Since then he’s had a mastectomy, chemo, went into remission for a little over a year. 5 months ago he found out it metastasized to his bones and on March 27th, 2014…the day before I’m writing this…cancer won and he passed away in his sleep.
The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. I’ll be just one of thousands of people who will participate in this event, raising awareness promoting education.

I can’t do it without your help. Though I’m required to raise at least $1,800 to walk in the event, I plan to raise much more! I hope that I can count on your support. Any amount will help the cause.
You can make a donation right here on the website by clicking the “Donate Now” button on this page. If you prefer to write a check, please contact me, and I’ll send you the information and form.
As I prepare for this exciting event, I plan to update this page frequently so that all my supporters like you can follow my progress, so please visit often. While you’re here, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise.
Thank you in advance.
