BENEFITING: The Ellie Fund

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

The mission of the Ellie Fund is to provide essential support services for  breast cancer patients to ease the stresses of everyday life, allowing the focus to be on family, recovery and healing.

Our Healing Together Patient and Family Care Program (Healing Together Program) provides the following services free of charge to help relieve a patient’s financial and emotional burden while in treatment: 

  • transportation to medical appointments,
  • childcare,
  • housekeeping,
  • groceries and
  • prepared/delivered meals

Our work is now focused on the implementation of the Extension of the Healing Together Program in 2016. The average length of active treatment, including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy for the patients we serve is 5 months. To better meet the continuous needs of patients and families while in treatment, our hope is to increase service grants to 3 months with an ultimate goal of providing services for a patient’s entire course of treatment. 

Your support is invaluable to breast cancer patients like Nicole, 34 year-old single mother, who wrote to us saying:

“Chemotherapy wreaks havoc on your body but that in no way compared to the sense of helplessness I felt when I couldn’t feed my children. I remember the day that I received the grocery store gift cards from the Ellie Fund. When I went to the mailbox that day, I not only received grocery store gift cards, but I also received the most important gift of all- hope.”

Thank you for helping the Ellie Fund lead the way, provide the hope and fund the care. ​
