Welcome to The Ann Clarke Dollard Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. After Ann lost her life to breast cancer in October of 2011, just weeks after her 47th birthday, a great void was left in the hearts of all who knew her. To honor Ann and continue on with the work she had already started, we have created this organization to help others in our area impacted by cancer, with an emphasis on breast cancer. We aim to make a positive impact and ease the financial and mental burden cancer creates.  We may be small but we fulfill a real and unmet need in our surrounding communities. We are run by 100% volunteer efforts and all donations go directly to those in need. In true Ann fashion, we will continue her legacy by hosting the Annual Black Tie ^Breast Optional Gala. Please see the page for details of this year's event. Come back and visit our site often.

As a result of the generous support of many corporations and individual donors, we have been able to assist numerous local individuals and their families who are undergoing cancer treatments. Below are just a few examples of the type of unique unmet needs we have been able to meet:

  • For several years, have done the shopping and provided Christmas presents to many young area children who would otherwise have had to go without. Their parent was receiving treatment, not working, and unable to afford gifts or in some sad cases, their parent had recently passed.
  • Arranged for extensive car repairs and a rental so a young mother of two could get to both her treatments and get to the hospital to see her newborn in the NICU,  and get there safely.
  • Covered the cost of insurance premiums so a young college student did not lose her health insurance while undergoing treatment.
  • Arranged for respite care so a husband could get out and do errands and grocery shopping during a time his cancer stricken wife could not be left alone.
  • Planned an excursion to New York City to make lasting memories for a mom and her teenage son who are struggling with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer.
  • Secured emergency housing for a woman with back to back cancer diagnoses who had been unable to work and lost her home. We then covered the deposits to get her into a long term, sustainable housing situation.
  • Helped with daycare costs for a single mother unable to work while undergoing chemotherapy.
  • Arranged for and covered the cost of wigs and styling for women who have lost their hair during chemo and could not afford a wig.
  • Covered co-pays and overdue bills and kept the utilities on for several families.
  • Purchased a compression sleeve and gauntlet to help fight lymphedema in a woman after a mastectomy.
  • Supported the children's programs at the Life With Cancer Family Center to help children whose lives have been turned upside down cancer diagnosis in themselves or their family
  • Provided grocery and gas cards for struggling families dealing with cancer.
  • Stopped the eviction of a mother and her two children who had missed work and income due to cancer.
  • Secured funeral arrangements for a grieving mother who did not have the funds for a deposit and had been turned away by the funeral home.

​​The type of help we give is dictated by the individual and unique needs of the particular  individual. No one size fits all and we do whatever we can to help.
