8th Annual Melody Shafie Charity Golf Tournament


May 20, 2019, at Reston National Golf

The Melody Shafie Foundation for Neuroblastoma (MSFN) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was founded in loving memory of Melody Shafie. Melody’s long and courageous battle against neuroblastoma ended in January of 2006. Since then, her parents, Drs. Hamid Shafie and Maryam Mohammadi, along with her sister Ava Shafie, have worked to raise awareness for this childhood cancer. MSFN raises funds to support research aimed at fostering the understanding of and finding a cure for neuroblastoma. Your generous participation in this event will directly impact the lives of many!
