This year’s Annual Friends of Lourdes Fund is entirely dedicated to raising much needed funds in the fight against cancer. To this end we are earmarking all money raised through this appeal for the Geller Oncology Fund. This fund was established by one of our former Lourdes Foundation Board members, Dr. Marilyn Geller to provide financial assistance to patients receiving treatment for cancer here at Lourdes Hospital.
The Geller Fund assists countless individuals going through cancer and cancer treatment with the basics of life including help in buying food, attaining transport to and from doctor’s appointments, buying medication and with various bills cancer patients may have.
Cancer affects many people within our community. Through your generosity and support of the Geller Oncology Fund you will assist countless individuals when they need it most!
The Geller Oncology Fund was established by Dr. Marilyn Geller and the late Dr. Sandy Geller in 2000 to provide financial assistance to patients receiving treatment at Lourdes Regional Cancer Center and at Broome Oncology. The Fund is a manifestation of the lifelong devotion of Marilyn and Sandy to improving lives and helping others.
Donations to the fund are used to address extraordinary financial needs of cancer patients and their families.
