Meet a Mom
If you have noticed or met a tall woman with an endearing Brooklyn accent running around town with three adorable girls (and possibly a lab!), it is likely Michelle-Lee! After taking some time away from her career in finance, Michelle-Lee got involved with The Sunrise Association, and more specifically Sunrise Day Camps, the world’s only dedicated full summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings all provided for free! As part of her time with Sunrise, Michelle volunteers weekly in Montefiore’s oncology unit, brightening the days of the kids and giving their parents a much needed hour to themselves. A fun fact – once a year, Michelle-Lee also cans tomatoes (800 lbs last summer) with family and friends, a tradition many look forward to. Michelle-Lee is someone with a heart of gold, who Westport – and Sunrise – are truly lucky to have. If you are interested in learning more, or helping with her current initiative to fill 200 stockings for the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, email her directly at email@example.com.
