Founder & Executive Director Receives Award

Nov 2, 2011

The Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation is proud to announce that the organization’s founder and Executive Director, Christina Merrill, has been selected to receive Traditional Home magazine’s 2011 Classic Woman Award. In its November/December 2011 issue, the magazine profiles five women who are making a measurable difference in their communities and in the lives of others. This year, supporters and the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation board members Charlotte Moss and Meg Braff nominated Christina in recognition of her tireless efforts on behalf of bone marrow recipients and their families. For almost 20 years, Christina has passionately fought to provide the funding and resources that those affected by cancer and other genetic disorders so desperately need. Christina Merrill has touched the lives of thousands of children and adults since she began the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation in 1992.
