Over the course of twenty-eight years…
The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has changed the medical landscape of the East End of Long Island, where breast cancer diagnosis and mortality rates are among the highest in New York State.
With a deep commitment to the community, the Foundation gives back by funding state-of-the-art medical equipment and breast cancer screenings at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center (EHBC) at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and locations in Hampton Bays and East Hampton.
Proceeds also benefit Ellen’s Well, a free psychosocial services program that provides support groups and other healing opportunities.
All that we do is only possible with the support of donors like you.Click to donate to the Annual Fund Drive
