About the Foundation

Founded by the family of Melissa Marottoli Hogan to honor her life, the MMH Foundation seeks to support ground-breaking lung cancer research, to promote lung cancer awareness, and to provide assistance to lung cancer afflicted families. The Foundation donates all net proceeds, has no paid staff, and enlists the help of sponsors and volunteers to promote the cause of finding a cure.

Melissa’s Story

Melissa Marottoli Hogan was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer at 26 years old. There is no explanation, no reason, no answer to how she got sick; and we, her family, were determined to fight right by her side. Melissa was able to beat the odds, living 5 years with stage IV lung cancer 4 years longer than expected. We attribute this to Melissa’s attitude, faith, and access to great medicine.
