As an active member of his local community, Richard Smith highlights the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund - a non-profit organization that provides individuals with financial assistance throughout the course of their treatment.
GLEN FALLS, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 4, 2021 / Founded in 2017, the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund is a non-profit initiative that aims to support individuals currently battling cancer. Understanding the financial pressure that accompanies this type of diagnosis, the organization works diligently to ensure individuals and families can maintain their independence. By providing access to the necessary tools and resources, the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund is helping to cultivate positive change in the Capital District of New York.
As a local financial advisor, Richard Smith has donated both his time and efforts to the cause. After meeting the founder, Terra Maddalone-Ristau, he was inspired to help make a difference in his community.
"I first heard of the foundation while volunteering at an event for my ex-wife and best friend, Laura. She had been diagnosed with cancer eight times, so I understood firsthand the financial hardships that a cancer diagnosis can bring. The individuals at the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund are helping people navigate an exceptionally challenging time in their life. I am proud to be a part of the solution."
The Mother Teresa Fund hosts a wide range of events annually where proceeds go directly to community members. Individuals looking to be added to a guest list, volunteer, or make a donation, can view a list of upcoming events on the official website.
"Cancer does not discriminate on race, religion, sexual orientation, or political affiliation. At a time when our country seems so deeply divided, it is organizations such as the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund that helps to remind us what is truly important."
With a mission to change lives in their community, the organization is always looking for new volunteers.

About the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund
The Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund was founded in 2017 by Terra Maddalone-Ristau and her parents, Joyce and Hank Maddalone. After receiving a cancer diagnosis, Joyce established a GoFundMe Campaign to help with the out-of-pocket expenses. Hesitant to accept the financial support, she donated a percentage of the proceeds to other individuals impacted by the cost of treatment. They eventually established the Mother Teresa Cancer Awareness Fund that helps financially assist individuals and families in the Capital District of New York.
