PLEASE NOTE THAT ELLIE FUND IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THEIR 128TH BOSTON MARATHON TEAM.
Ellie Fund is a registered Massachusetts 501(c)(3). Our programs are focused on building healthy communities by providing essential support services - free of charge - to breast cancer patients undergoing treatment all across the Commonwealth. Ellie Fund services - including grocery assistance, nutritious delivered meals, transportation to appointments, childcare, housekeeping, and integrative therapies - are designed to relieve a patient’s financial and emotional burdens during costly and debilitating treatment, promoting treatment adherence for a chance at the best possible health outcome. Uniquely, Ellie Fund partners with our patients, delivering services on a monthly basis for up to six months, helping patients cope in the face of scary unknowns, and budget amid increased bills and reduced income. By meeting a patient’s daily non-medical needs, Ellie Fund achieves our mission to alleviate stress during breast cancer treatment, allowing patients to focus on what matters most: family, healing, and getting back on their feet.
