$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.

Books Bought For Fairfield Elementary School

The Fund recently donated $300 to the Fairfield Elementary School in Saco for the purchase of books for their library.

Elle loved reading and being read to. So buying more books for the library was something we really wanted to accomplish. The books will have a nameplate recognizing Elle and the Fund. Hopefully, this can become a regular event.

As always, these gifts are possible because of your support for the Fund. And we thank you for your generosity in helping us keep Elle's spirit of love and kindness alive.
