BOSTON - April 3, 2013 - PRLog -- Expect Miracles Foundation is one of the leading advocates in the fight against cancer within the financial services industry, receiving support from top financial services firms and industry luminaries. ( The Miracle Maker Leadership Council (MMLC) was established to empower the Foundation's top donors to have a more personal and significant role in the impact of their gifts. The MMLC is a select group of current and future leaders in the financial community whose mission is to direct funding to cancer fighting causes where such support in not always readily available. The MMLC is funded through individual contributions from MMLC members, who congregate annually to review grant applications, deliberate, and select funding award recipients.
