About Team Towanda

The inspiration behind Team Towanda foundation is the story of a woman who fought and survived a battle with breast cancer, thanks to the support of great friends and great healthcare. While receiving treatment, Judith Melchreit realized that many women facing the exact same health challenge were not receiving the same standard of care that she was receiving — because they were not covered by health insurance. Feeling every woman deserves the same care, she shared her concern with friends and Team Towanda Foundation was born with the vision of helping uninsured women receive mammograms and other breast-related services. It was this very group of girlfriends that helped Judith write a cookbook to share her positive experience, and to give tips and advice for friends of those fighting cancer. The cookbook was a huge success — over 13,000 copies have been printed to-date. Today, the Foundation raises money by selling Team Towanda merchandise online, hosting events and receiving donations. All proceeds go directly to women in need. Team Towanda Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. It became a certified 501c3 non-profit organization in 2002.
