I recently joined the Board of Directors for the Ellie Fund, however, my families involvement with this organization started more than two years ago. My family became involved with the Ellie Fund after a close friend of ours was diagnosed with breast cancer. Feeling helpless that we could not go through the radiation or chemo, we told her that we wanted to raise money for some breast cancer related cause in her honor. She then told us the story of the Ellie Fund and one particular women who she met that was going through chemo treatment (while still working) and how the Ellie Fund was able to help this individual. Since then we have heard many more stories about the direct impact that the services provided through the Ellie Fund have had for those families throughout Massachusetts who are fighting breast cancer on a daily basis. As a result, my wife and I have continued to work closely with the Ellie Fund to raise awareness and donations for this fantastic organization.

Working for the Ellie Fund as member of the board is truly an honor. After every board meeting, I walk away inspired and moved by the hard work, dedication, and care that go into this organization. The services provided for breast cancer patients and their families are nothing less than exceptional. With the outstanding fundraising events, the tireless volunteers, and most importantly the brave women and their families affected by breast cancer, Ellie Fund is a top notch charity that touches the lives and makes a difference for everyone involved.

I am so proud to be a Board Member of the Ellie Fund! I have a fear of public speaking but would not hesitate to stand in front of a big crowd to talk about the important work this organization does. The Ellie Fund staff go above and beyond providing the much needed services breast cancer patients deserve.

As a breast cancer patient, I heard about The Ellie Fund from my medical team. I was so impressed with the mission of The Ellie Fund right from the start. Their focus is on helping the women and their families during a very challenging time by providing them with necessary things like rides to appointments and healthy meals. Their fund raising events are all about health and beauty, sending a positive message to donors and patients alike. I wish there were more organizations like The Ellie Fund!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many ways. Friendship, support, kindness and information.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure people in all areas of Massachusetts know about The Ellie Fund.
