October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are raising awareness here at Fontbonne and raising money for the Ellie Fund. The Ellie Fund provides essential support services for local breast cancer patients to ease the stresses of everyday life, allowing the focus to be on family, recovery and healing.
Nutritional and grocery assistance
Transportation to and from medical appointments
Integrative therapies (Metastatic Breast Cancer Support Program only)
Because of your support, the Ellie Fund can continue to provide assistance to breast cancer patients like Jessica, a 43-year-old woman with metastatic breast cancer who said to us:
"The Ellie Fund has changed so many lives. Made lives so much better for so many patients, just by being there. Just by helping out with something that sounds so simple, like help with groceries or childcare. The Ellie Fund gives piece of mind to patients because a breast cancer diagnosis is life changing in so many ways. Financially, socially, emotionally, it is life changing."
