On July 14, 2008, at the age of 32, 32 weeks pregnant, and the mother of a three-year-old, Megan S. Ott was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Three weeks later her second daughter Lauren was born, and the Otts began their journey through life as a young family fighting the devastating effects of breast cancer.
The Megan S. Ott Foundation is the remarkable vision of Megan Snyder Ott. Megan envisioned an organization that would provide immediate personalized financial support and "sunshine" to families in the Indianapolis metro community fighting the day-to-day battle of breast cancer.
Two Foundation volunteers are paired with each recipient to build personal, supportive relationships.
In late 2010 while on a getaway vacation with her husband, Jill found a lump in her breast. A few weeks later she learned that she had stage 3 breast cancer and was BRCA1 positive. Upon learning the news, the young mother of two daughters was prepared to "fight and be relentless." During Jill's treatment, the Foundation has provided "sunshine" to her family, and today Jill is doing well.
Applicants are referred to the foundation thru various sources.
Applicants are then assigned to 2 foundation council volunteers.
The “volunteer team" in conjunction with the recipient determines how to best use the grant given them by the foundation.
