Our Mission and Vision
Amy’s Treat is dedicated to providing solutions to the day-to-day difficulties of living with cancer and offers unexpected “treats” to renew the spirit.
Amy’s Treat was created in December 2007 as a legacy foundation in honor and loving memory of Amy Maliszewski to benefit the patients of the Seacoast Cancer Center of New Hampshire. Whether supplying box seats to a Red Sox game, offering a quiet getaway to a lovely inn or presenting a gas card to help take the sting out of getting to treatment, Amy’s Treat has touched the lives of hundreds of individuals living with cancer. This unique collaboration between a cancer center and a community is fueled by the all volunteer staff that make up Amy’s Treat.
The success of Amy’s Treat is only possible through the generosity of so many. By offering up their season tickets, providing dinner at their restaurant, gifting a full range of spa services, volunteering to clean a house, furnishing free eye exams, donating a spot at a French Country Cooking class or slipping a check into an envelope (to name only a few), Amy’s Treat is a neighbor rising up in support of a neighbor.
How Amy’s Treat Works
In essence, Amy’s Treat acts as a conduit between the donor and the individual with cancer. With some charities, a donation may be diverted to areas other than what the donor intended. A contribution to Amy’s Treat ends up exactly where the donor meant it to be; in the hands of those who need it most. When asked to meet a specific request, Amy’s Treat works tirelessly to fill it, calling on a wide network of supporters and other-like minded organizations whose primary goal is to provide assistance to those living with cancer.
