June Donations and Fund Update

As of last week, the Eve Coleman Memorial Fund has raised $9,900!

I recently spoke to Teresa Pischner, the Breast Care Navigator at Roper St. Francis Cancer Center, who has developed funding criteria to ensure that the Center continues to honor our intent for donations.

"The Eve Coleman Memorial Fund is making it possible for us to help our underfunded breast cancer patients at critical points in their care and we are most grateful for the generosity," says Teresa. She will continue to make sure that the Fund money directly meets the needs of patients and their families.

Teresa gave a few examples of how the money has been spent so far. Please see the entry below, or click here, for those patients' stories.

Jon and I will continue to update the site with donation information and further details on who and how the Fund has helped. We've been very proud to watch the Fund grow as we settle into married life, and will continue to remember my Mom by managing and donating to it for many years to come.

Thank you so much for your support,

Jennifer & Jon
