Overview

Self-reported by organization

Last year, the Ellie Fund helped over 525 families across the state fight breast cancer by providing support services free of charge. As part of our mission, our goal is to not turn anyone away that qualifies, and last year we continued to meet that goal. In addition, we raised over $500,000 that supports our Breast Cancer Patient and Family Care Program. This year, we look to expand to help more women, men and families across the state, and seek funding for specific expansion programs in the Boston area.

Program 1

Breast Cancer Patient Support Program

Breast cancer patients are eligible to receive support from the Ellie Fund if they are referred by a licensed medical professional, are undergoing active treatment for the disease, and complete the application in full together with the referring medical professional. The patient prioritizes which support services would most greatly enhance their quality of life and the Ellie Fund acts as a catalyst and funder to provide the services indicated.
