The purpose of The Stay Strong and Mahj On Foundation is to reach out to breast cancer survivors, their family members and friends, and connect them through the re-emerging, multi-generational game of Mah Jongg.

Utilizing personal donations as well as funds raised from events across the United States, The Stay Strong and Mahj On Foundation contributes to local, community-based breast cancer organizations, educational programs and wellness facilities throughout the United States.


We are a tax-exempt 501(c)3 charitable organization.  Tax ID# 47-5651786


 The Stay Strong and Mahj On Foundation is run entirely by volunteers across the country.


Our new #MahjAcrossAmerica social media campaign raised over $1,000 during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. 

With these funds, we are launching a new initiative.  SSAMO will be collaborating with cancer treatment  and supportive care facilities to create game centers for their patients and their families. These centers will include Mah Jongg sets, cards, card tables and chairs, and other games to be used during treatments and appointments. We will also be training volunteers in these facilities to  play Mah Jongg.

Our partner in this first initiative is Northshore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Kellogg Cancer Center.  Click here to learn more about our event on March 5, 2017 at Pinot’s Palette in Glenview IL.
