The Lisa Pitts Eley Cancer Foundation recently received a $3,500 grant to help aid local individuals and families facing a cancer diagnosis. This grant was awarded from Mary Washington Hospital Foundation’s Joe and Mary Wilson Community Benefit Fund and from the Stafford Hospital Community Benefit Fund.

The grant allows the Lisa Pitts Eley Cancer Foundation to offer a range of supportive services to patients and their families, including financial aid for bills, housing costs, transportation expenses, and even gifts during the holiday season.

Chuck Eley established the foundation in 2016, two years after losing his wife, Lisa, to cancer. Inspired by an act of kindness shown to his family during their time of need, Chuck decided to create a support system for others facing similar challenges.

“We are delighted to support the Lisa Pitts Eley Cancer Foundation in providing vital assistance to individuals and families affected by cancer,” said Xavier Richardson, MWHC Chief Development Officer and President of Mary Washington and Stafford Hospital Foundations. “Through Foundation funds, we are able to make a positive impact in a variety of ways, to improve the health of the communities we serve.”
