Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial FundWebsite URL
In 1976, 2-year-old Kelly Anne was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. During the five years of Kelly Anne’s illness, her parents saw the hardships that other parents were experiencing; parents were losing jobs, homes, cars, utilities and telephones. Kelly Anne’s condition evolved into a terminal form of leukemia; she died from the disease in 1976. The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund was created to help other families caring for seriously ill, injured, or disabled children.
Over the last 37 years the Fund has provided assistance for more than 22,000 families in crisis.
