From Devon; "As many of you know, my mother died of breast cancer in 2003. She would have loved to have been a part of our wedding ceremony, and since Sarah never had the chance to meet her, we both tried to find the perfect way to include her and honor her memory. The Ellie Fund is a Massachusetts-based charitable organization that assists families with their basic needs while a loved one is suffering from breast cancer, and since my family had struggled greatly with our day-to-day obligations during my mother's battle, we wanted to support an organization that addressed this struggle in a meaningful way. In lieu of gifts, we would be grateful for donations made to the Ellie Fund to honor our marriage. Thank you."
