The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund advocates for families with seriously ill, physically and cognitively challenged, or severely injured children nationwide through information and education. Financial assistance for needs not covered by insurance is provided to families whose children are living in or cared for in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Families in crisis are referred to us by an extensive network of social workers, case managers, physical therapists, and healthcare professionals within hospitals, medical facilities, social service agencies, and treatment centers.
The Fund has assisted more than 20,000 families in 35 years of operation. In 2011 our Holiday program provided toys and other gifts to 217 families in need. Our yearly Fun Day cruise aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia allowed 425 patients, parents and siblings a chance to get away from it all for a day; our Longwood Gardens Day hosted 50 families to see the colors of fall.
