    We could not be more excited to have Stacy D'Amico MacQuarrie fighting in Haymaker's For Hope's "Belles of the Brawl" event on October 10, 2018, and for choosing Marisa's Mission as her charity to raise money for! Stacy, a mother of 4,  recently experienced firsthand how cancer can destroy everything in it's path. Last year, Stacy's husband, Jamie, was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. In caring for her husband and being a source of strength for her family, she has already proven herself a force to be reckoned with. Thank you Stacy, for literally fighting for this cause! We can't wait to see you in the ring on 10/10! Check out the awesome story by Butch Stearns of Boston 25 News!

    March is Marisa's Month! To celebrate, Marisa's Mission decided to partner with some great local businesses to offer a variety of special discounts, promotions and fun events all month long! Proceeds from these special offerings and events were donated back to us to help support our mission of helping cancer patients and their families lessen their stress and financial burdens. Check out this great video clip from Sheehan Personal Training to tell you a bit about us and the special "Sweat & Sip" event they are hosting for us in the month of March.
