(March 22, 2018) Attorney Dara Lynn Freytag of Tarlow Breed Hart & Rodgers has been elected to serve on the Board of Directors of Marisa’s Mission (www.Marisas-Mission.org).
Marisa’s Mission was established in October of 2016 in an effort to keep alive the memory of Marisa D. Federico, who died of breast cancer on March 26, 2016, at the age of 37. Marisa was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She taught all those around her to never give up, to never give in, and to always believe in the good despite the struggles that may surround you.
The goal of Marisa’s Mission is to help others who are dealing with a devastating diagnosis of cancer and all the financial and emotional hardships that come with it. Marisa’s Mission responds to the needs of individuals diagnosed with cancer through a multi-faceted supported approach with the goal of helping patients and families lessen their stress and financial burdens in order to focus on what matters most – health and family. In order to meet its mission and provide for the greater community, Marisa’s Mission relies on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. In its first year as an organization, Marisa’s Mission made significant progress in its fundraising efforts through events, sponsorships, and various contributions from individuals and businesses alike, including their Annual Triple Crown Night in May. Marisa’s Mission has been busy putting those dollars to work supporting numerous families in an array of capacities, including home assistance, care, medical research, and travel and lodging.
