#OneSmallAct of kindness can change lives and save lives in our community.
Our beautiful corner of the East End of Long Island has one of the highest rates of breast cancer diagnosis and mortality in the state. Having local access to screening, treatment and psycho-social support is life changing and life saving for women in our community who would otherwise need to travel long distances to receive health care services and support.
Your gift will fund essential health care in our own community through mammography screenings at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital and its satellite locations in Hampton Bays and East Hampton. The Ellen’s Well support program provides oncological social worker-led support groups, nutrition, yoga, reiki and other healing opportunities for breast cancer survivors—free of charge.
Your donation will help provide direct services that are critical in breast cancer diagnosis and support.
"The encouragement, assistance and knowledge received through services provided by Ellen's Well helped me to cope and overcome this horrific disease. I could never have been able to pay for all the love and support I received. I thank God and Ellen's Well for making me a better person through it all." L.F.
“My wife had a mammogram today at the Southampton Hospital. And she was offered a 3D a mammography at no cost. The technician said it is thanks to The Ellen Hermanson Foundation. Thank you so much for such a generous gift of such a valuable resource.” M.T
The Ellen Hermanson Foundation ensures access to state-of-the-art breast health care and empowers people affected by cancer. No patient is turned away from The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center for lack of insurance or inability to pay for treatment.
