Financial Resources

The Theodore R. and Betsy Harpley Endowment Fund

The Theodore R. and Betsy Harpley Endowment Fund was initially established as the Theodore Raymond Harpley Endowment Fund in 1992 by Betsy Harpley in memory of her husband. In 2021, their adult children changed the name of the fund to include their mother in recognition of the care both parents received at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. This fund helps patients with cancer and their families meet the expenses of needed care and services, for example: personal care attendants or home health aides, room and board at a hospice house, and/or other supplementary services that are part of a patient’s treatment plan. For information, please call 781-744-3496 or email us.

The Ellie Fund

The Ellie Fund provides funding and resources for women and their families who are undergoing breast cancer treatment in Massachusetts. For information, please call 781-449-0100 or visit the Ellie Fund website.
