The fund was founded by the Dolan family following the loss of their child to a rare form of leukemia just prior to her seventh birthday. Because the Dolan’s had seen too many families lose children, along with their jobs and life savings due to high medical costs and time needed to devote to care, they founded this fund. It pays for costs not covered by insurance. The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund recently received help from the Spirit of Philadelphia ship to assist in providing fundraisers, as well as a venue for children and their parents undergoing medical treatment. President Kevin presented Peggy with a donation to the Fund from the club.
