M HEALTH FAIRVIEW MASONIC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
The M Health Fairview Masonic Children's Hospital provides a broad range of pediatric programs and care for children battling cancer. This hospital is a leader in pediatric oncology services as well as top-notch research and was the site of the first successful pediatric bone marrow transplant.
Love Your Melon is proud to have supported Masonic Children’s Hospital with over 1.4 million dollars in support of the fight against pediatric cancer since 2016. Your support in the past has helped fund groundbreaking brain tumor research and treatments, bone marrow transplants, 3D Bioprinters, a therapy dog program, as well as the Love Your Melon lounge inside Kyle Rudolph's End Zone. Our lounge provides a safe and positive environment for children and teens to relax and play amidst the difficulties of treatment.
At the end of 2021, we gifted $400,000 to Masonic Children's Hospital, which will support both research and provide family support. $100,000 of the gift that went towards supporting research in the prevention of childhood leukemia.
In 2021, the remaining $300,000 went toward renaming and building the Love Your Melon Family Resource Center within the hospital, at the site of Love Your Melon's first beanie donation event. In 2022, Love Your Melon’s gift of $200,000 completed our pledged commitment to the naming and building of the Love Your Melon Family Resource Center.
