Charity Spotlight: The Ellie Fund
Since 1995, the organization, named after founder Jeff Popkin’s mother, Eleanor, who passed away in 1987 following a battle with breast cancer that lasted over fifteen years, seeks to provide services and assistance to breast cancer patients residing in and/or receiving treatment in Massachusetts. While there have been countless advances in the effectiveness of breast cancer treatment over the last few decades, and while we are certainly blessed to live in a state like Massachusetts that has some of the best healthcare resources in the world, The Ellie Fund recognizes that the need for services that relieve the financial and emotional burden of patients and their families has remained unchanged.
Through their efforts, they are able to provide free-of-charge services to hundreds of breast cancer patients throughout Massachusetts, including grocery assistance, transportation, light housekeeping, childcare reimbursement, prepared meals, and therapy services.
We hope that you’ll come out to our performance this Saturday and support this wonderful cause! If you would like to find out more about The Ellie Fund, see the information below:
