“Thank you for the day of pampering. It was just what the doctor ordered! Thank God for the Elixir Fund. You really make a difference in the lives of patients. ~Sylvia Boyer


It is messages such as the one above that drive the Elixir Fund. As we celebrate our ninth year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done to make Kevin’s dream and experiences such as the one that Sylvia had a reality.

We are thrilled to announce that we have been offered up to $50,000 in Matching Funds from a foundation that has supported us since the beginning. This new, large grant is a show of faith in the new direction that the Elixir Fund is heading with the creation of the Elixir Fund Registry. The Elixir Fund Registry will be a virtual community which will allow friends and family, and even concerned strangers, the opportunity to make real and meaningful direct gifts to cancer patients or their caregivers. Rather than sending flowers, which many oncology units no longer allow, purchasers can choose from a menu of items such as grocery delivery, lawn care, housecleaning, etc. that was custom designed by the patient and caregiver. The perfect answer to “How can I help?”

It will take a grassroots effort to make this dream a reality and we would like to enlist your help. To ensure that our records are up to date we have created survey for our supporters. We would like to know what information and updates you would like to receive from us, how you would like to receive them, and how you might like to help with the Elixir Fund Registry. Please fill out our survey below and return it to us. If you would like to make your 2012 donation at this time, we will put it toward the Matching Grant.

Thank you for your time and your support.
