Elixir Fund’s 2011 Newsletter
It has been another year of tremendous growth for the Elixir Fund. Thanks to Audrey Gordon we have a new logo and thanks to Lisa Snyder of Elle*Eye Design we have a new web page. As we celebrate our eighth year, we are taking stock and looking at new ways in which we can reach more patients and caregivers directly. In February, with the help of Kerry Kay of Kerry Kay Healing, we launched a new program Bridges to Wellness, which was a wonderful success. We are looking at additional ways to expand and adjust our programs so that we are better able to provide direct comfort and support to cancer patients and their caregivers.
The mission of the Elixir Fund is to help patients and caregivers take a break from cancer so that they can continue to live full and rich lives during treatment, better preparing them for life after treatment. It is a common question not only from our supporters, but from friends, family and even neighbors of the over one million people diagnosed with cancer each year – “How Can I Help?” In 2012 the Elixir Fund plans to launch a new and unique program, A Cancer Comfort Registry, which will provide the perfect answer.
Read on to hear more about all that we have accomplished this year thanks to the support of friends like you and learn how you can help us to create an exciting new and innovative program that will directly impact the lives of those living with cancer.
