Ali’s Alliance, Inc. Receives $5,000 Grant from Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties

Funds will support ongoing programming of the only comprehensive, searchable database for cancer patients, providers and caregivers 

(July 2, 2013-Jupiter, FL) The Richard and Lesley Stone Family Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties recently announced a grant of $5,000 for Ali’s Alliance, Inc. to support ongoing operations within the non-profit.

David J. Cowan, Sr. founded Ali’s Alliance in 2011 following the passing of his wife, Alison Arnesen Cowan, from Mucosal Melanoma-a rare form of cancer that took her life 11 months after her diagnosis. Named in honor of Alison, Ali’s Alliance was Cowan’s solution to finding a way to help other cancer patients and their caregivers by providing a one-stop, on-line resource center. Through Ali’s Alliance, visitors can access the latest research being done for specific types of cancer, find specialists throughout the North America’s, connect with local providers, and look into alternative therapies for their particular cancer type. The database currently has all research being done on dozens of types of cancer and 34 categories of service throughout the country.
