Meghan's Mountain

Meghan's Mountain Charitable Foundation, Inc.

Our purpose

Meghan’s Mountain is a non-profit charitable foundation that raises money for what Meghan defined as “direct patient care”. All of our funds must directly benefit the cancer patient and his or her family members. No matter what the size of the cancer hospital or institution there is never enough funds to cover everything. Please visit the Our Funds section to learn how our “brothers and sisters” benefit from your tax deductible generosity.

How it all began

At the age of 22, Sarah Meghan Steinberg was confronted with one of the most challenging battles of her life. Leukemia. Instead of allowing this devastating type of cancer take another life, she made the decision to let it make a change in hers. Armed with first-hand knowledge of the challenges cancer presents to individuals and their families, Meghan started an organization with the mission of generating awareness and resources for cancer sufferers and survivors. Meghan's Mountain was born. Read more about Meghan's Journey here.

Meghan's Mission

Founded on the principles of helping cancer patients and their immediate families overcome their struggles with cancer.  The mission is simple. To let every child and adult know that they do not climb their mountain alone. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever!

How you can help

Through the support of helping hands and generous contributions such as yours, Meghan's Mountain continues to make a difference. As an organization committed to awareness and assistance, contributions to Meghan's Mountain are tax deductible, and they go to a great cause.

No matter who you are, we all have mountains to climb. But when it comes to cancer, no one should have to climb that mountain alone. Give today of your time, money or resources, and to help at least one cancer survivor reach their summit.
