administrators, as well as training new employees in dealing with families in crisis. When Melina came face-to-face with her own dire health crisis, life as she knew it stopped and her battle against an aggressive cancer began. It was during this fight that Melina discovered how to treat her body and she won, not only a healthy body, but a healthy life.
Melina continues to live an active lifestyle, competing in life-affirming events such as a 100 mile bike ride to bring awareness Muscular Dystrophy; finishing first in age group in the Rachel Carson Challenge; and training athletes and teaching others how to honor their one body and win at life.
