Love your Melon

Love your Melon is student run organization with a mission of improving the lives of children battling cancer.  It was founded at St. Thomas University in 2012 by two students in an entrepreneurship class and went nationwide in 2014.  Love your melon now has 2500 student ambassadors on 225 college campuses throughout the United States.  For every beanie or hat that the organization sells, one is donated to a child fighting cancer.  Emily Fortman was a previous Ambassador while attending the University of Iowa. Emily is happy to see that her years working with the University of Iowa Dance Marathon raising money for families of children with cancer continue to evolve.  A great college football custom was born in the fall of 2017.  The “Wave” to the children at the University of Iowa Children’s hospital at the end of the first quarter has become very popular.  In Emily’s honor, we at North Iowa Periodontics, would like to continue to help raise money and awareness for children fighting cancer.  To order a beanie or hat, go to  Be sure to put the University of Iowa as your donation campus.
