WHO CAN APPLY
Social service agencies (or clergy, town supervisor, etc.) on behalf of cancer patients and their families with financial need who reside or work in the Connecticut towns of Canaan(Falls Village), Cornwall, Kent, North Canaan, Salisbury and Sharon.
The Jane Lloyd Fund was established at Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation to benefit cancer patients and their families with financial need who reside or work in the Connecticut towns of Canaan, Cornwall, Falls Village, Kent, Salisbury and Sharon.
The Jane Lloyd Fund supports patients’ day-to-day living expenses. These may include the costs of medical transportation, housing, food, utilities and other associated expenses that help the patient heal in a supportive environment or depart this life comfortably with friends and family.
The Fund was founded by Jane Lloyd’s family with the help of Erin Selby, Tracie Shannon and Tanya Tedder. They wanted to respond to the generosity of community members who helped Jane when she was in need, so that others in the community might experience the same sense of well-being in their own time of great sadness and need.
Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997. After undergoing surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, Jane continued her successful gardening business until 2004, when a relapse limited her ability to work full-time. The community and her family supported her by paying for her mortgage, utilities, and other expenses so that she could stay in her house in Lime Rock as long as possible.
It is with joyous hearts that this Fund has been established to continue the chain of generosity and good will, linking Jane to many other families long into the future. The Lloyd family hopes that those who receive support from the Jane Lloyd Fund will consider directing contributions to the Fund so that it will grow and continue to support many people in the years to come.
