You can live a full and rich life during treatment.
A diagnosis of cancer changes your life, but it does not mean that your life is over. It is possible to live a full and rich life during cancer treatment and beyond. The Elixir Fund is dedicated to helping those impacted by cancer; whether newly diagnosed, in treatment, post treatment or caregivers. Our director, Meg McQuarrie, is certified as a Lay Patient Navigator. She is available to help both patients and caregivers find and access support services in their local areas that will help make the cancer journey a little easier- whether it be meals, transportation, housecleaning, a support group, or maybe even yoga or massage -we are here to help.
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, please contact us at (800) 494-9228 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
