Meredith McNerney is the founder and Executive Director of A Message of Hope Cancer Fund, Inc., an all-volunteer organization, whose mission is to provide direct financial assistance to families who face the monetary burdens associated with cancer. She was inspired to start the organization after her own battle with Merkel Cell Cancer. Her primary role is to oversee all operations for all three branches of the organization, as well as work directly with the families the organization serves. Professionally, Mrs. McNerney is a teacher, writer, and speaker. She is currently employed as a curriculum writer for the Montgomery County Public School system. As a new author, she hopes her story will inspire others. Proceeds from the sale of her book, Facing Cancer: A Spiritual Journey from Pain to Peace, will benefit the organization. Meredith lives in Clarksburg, Maryland with her two daughters, Danielle and Kaitlyn, and her husband, Mark.
