The Ellis Fund is a non-profit organization providing hope through non-medical financial assistance to families facing childhood cancer in Southwest Missouri.

There’s a reason that pediatric cancer is known as a family illness: the whole family is involved.

Usually, one parent will have to give up their job or reduce work hours to take care of a sick child. Then there's necessary travel, meals away from home, and necessities ranging from diapers to OTC medications. At some point, these families need help with basic expenses, and national organizations don’t provide it.

We keep the lights on so that families can continue to support a child battling cancer.  



The Ellis Fund is unique in that we help families pay for non-medical expenses.
