The Melody Arons Center, MAC, is a living memorial and tribute to the life of Melody Arons. Daughter of Raymond and Marilyn Arons, Melody died in 1997 before
she had the opportunity to have children of her own. The organization is based in her home, now converted into an early intervention and research center. Her parents chose to focus on the goal of
prevention and early intervention for all of the young children who will be products of Melody’s legacy at MAC - a brighter future with less risk of disability. For further information, our site
