$1000 Donated to Maine Children's Cancer Program

On Friday, November 18, the Fund donated $1000 to the Maine Children's Cancer Program (MCCP) at their offices in Scarborough, ME. This is the first donation the Fund has made to MCCP.

This particular donation will go towards buying items that make the time pediatric cancer patients spend getting treatment more tolerable. It will focus on toys and arts and crafts products (crayons, paints, paper). These were some of Elle's most favorite things to do while she received treatment. And we want to make sure that other children have that same opportunity.

This is first of what we hope are regular donations to MCCP by the Fund. Their treatment of Elle was first-class. She was able to live the life of a young girl with minimal restrictions right up to the time of her passing. Considering the seriousness of her cancer, that is nothing short of remarkable. And it was made possible by the doctors and staff at MCCP.
