If you are in need or know someone who is you can fill out this dhyf-assistance-form and request financial assistance from us. This is why we do all the fundraising! The form can be mailed back to us at the address below.
We have held Comedy Nights, Cut-a-Thons, Walkathons, Motorcycle Runs and Golf Tournaments over the years to raise money for the foundation.
Since 2011, annual efforts include the adoption of several families in need who’s loved ones are undergoing treatment at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. These are typically young families with financial hardships that we support with gifts and supermarket gift cards during the holidays.
In 2011, an annual scholarship was established in Danielle’s name for a student pursuing a degree in health care at North Shore Community College. In addition we have given monitary gifts to individual cancer patients who are struggling financially due to their battle with cancer.
100% of our proceeds are paid forward to those who are struggling with cancer.
Again, please don’t hesitate to fill out the paperwork dhyf-assistance-form and request financial assistance from us if you are in need & are fighting cancer.
