Review for The Ellie Fund, Needham, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter, Tara Griffith, was struck with Breast Cancer in April 2010. I was living in North Carolina at the time (I have subsequently moved back to the Boston area) and the long distance service that I could provide was minimal at best. Tara told me how the Ellie Fund contacted her directly and offered their services of help to her. It was beyond anything I had ever seen before in a non-profit. The fact that the Ellie Fund is providing much needed care to cancer patients on such a generous level caused an interest in me. I have been thru Taras treatments when I was able and saw how hard it can be to manage cancer and life. The balancing act required to sustain a sense of normality is beyond what could be understood outside this cancer arena. I was moved when I saw how the Ellie Fund, and its fund-raisers, sacrificially devoted themselves to be not only a help...but a true Blessing. It is an organization that doesn't just issue a balance sheet at the end of the year; but, an organization that has faces....faces of people actually served. Worthy Worthy Worthy cause to commit to and support. Thank You all.

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

Seeing my own daughter benefit from their generous and much needed program.

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

take more responsibility to help them. The only change to be made is for people to understand the impact the Ellie Fund has and rally to support and donate.

Role:  General Member of the Public & Raising funds over the summer to help in any way I can.
