MaryEllen "Mel" Goins was nothing short of a superhero. She was married to Bob, who is CPD and mom of 3 awesome kids. After being diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer in January of 2021, she fought with all of her soul and always with a smile on her face. She continued to coach basketball, volunteer for all things at St. Christina and continued to be an amazing mother, wife, and friend. Sadly she passed away in Feb 2022 surrounded by her family.

Mel gave all of herself to everyone. It's time for us to step up and support her by taking off some of the financial stress of her family.
