Who We HelpRead the following stories from those we've helped.
In March of 2016, Nevaeh was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic terminal disease. Despite her diagnosis, Nevaeh is a beautiful, happy, spirited baby who, despite her young age, is a warrior. For her parents, Nevaeh is the light in a sometimes dark world.
“Ellie’s Army Foundation has been a blessing to my family. After dealing with the diagnosis of our little girl, Nevaeh, we have had nothing but trials and tribulations. After multiple hospitalizations, we fell behind on our monthly bills. We were facing foreclosure and didn’t know what we were going to do. Ellie’s Army paid our mortgage and gave us the funds to keep our electricity turned on. They helped us purchase food, diapers and nutritional supplements. They gave us the relief we needed. Now we still have a home and hope. Thank you and God Bless everyone at Ellie’s Army Foundation.”
For 5 ½ months Courtney fought for her life on a ventilator as she waited for a double-lung transplant at Duke University Hospital. After relocating from Atlanta to North Carolina, and temporarily having no income, she and her husband found themselves unable to pay for their everyday living expenses. Ellie’s Army via “The Ellie’s Fund “ at Duke helped offset these bills.
On July 4th 2017, Courtney received her new set of lungs. We, at Ellie’s Army Foundation are thankful for the gift of life that she has received.
“I was fighting for my life and at the same time I had to deal with the unbearable stress of not knowing how we would survive financially. Ellie’s Fund took care of our expenses. They gave us security and peace of mind. We will be forever thankful to Ellie’s Army Foundation.”
“Ellie’s Army Foundation was the light at the end of the tunnel we needed. Dealing with our son J’meil being hospitalized, and missing work, we got behind on bills. Everyday living became tough.
With the Foundation’s help, we were able to get caught up on bills and focus on making sure our son stays healthy. Ellie’s Army Foundation not only cares about the suffering child, but the family as well. We are blessed and beyond grateful for the help that Ellie’s Army Foundation was able to provide.”
