Thus far, $38,000 donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA. Through the RMH, Sunday brunches are being provided to families on the oncology floor on a scheduled basis. In addition to these meals, the EKLF has provided a 4th of July BBQ to the oncology floor, and is also donating a Christmas Eve meal to the oncology families this year. This is where Ellie and our family will spend our Christmas Eve dinner…..the exact same place we were in 2007, only this time, much healthier. It is so important to us to let the oncology families know that they are NOT forgotten about, especially on the holidays. We are hoping to continue these donations to fellow oncology families at least through the end of Ellie’s treatments, in March 2010. After that, Ellie will no longer need treatment, but will have her blood checked for the rest of her life.

In addition, the EKLF has donated $12,000 in WAWA, Target and WalMart gift cards to the local CHOP facility where Ellie receives her outpatient chemo, so parents can get to and from the treatment center.

We can only continue to help these families with YOUR help. All contributions, big and small are greatly appreciated and will be sure to go a long way. We thank you for your continued support and are deeply moved by your concern for Ellie and our whole family.
