MHYH is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization co-founded in November 2011 by Judy Bode and Stephanie Zimmerman both adult survivors of childhood cancers in order to bring the story of the late effects of cancer treatment before the world.
The mission of myHeart, yourHands, Inc. is three-fold:
1) To raise awareness regarding the potential LATE EFFECTS of cancer treatment[s] among survivors, healthcare providers, and the general population
2) To educate and equip survivors regarding late effects of cancer treatments
3) To fund late effects research aimed towards early detection, effective management, and ultimately, prevention
In addition, MHYH will support initiatives that encourage and promote eye, tissue, and organ donor registration.
John, Derek, and Brent, I can not thank you enough for coming alongside myHeart, yourHands to increase the exposure of our cause on behalf of survivors, near and far: Thank you! Stephanie Zimmerman, MSN #LateEffects
