Helping Women with Breast Cancer Since 2001
After 20 incredible years of funding complementary care treatments for people with breast cancer, The U’ilani Fund closed at the end of 2020.
While we are sad to have to make this decision, we are incredibly proud of what we have accomplished. During these last 20 years we have given almost 2,000 grants for over $670,000 deserving women with breast cancer. These grants have helped our recipients not only have a better quality of life while going through treatment, they have also helped our recipients feel cared for and comforted during a very frightening and uncomfortable time in their lives. Your support of the U’ilani Fund has made all of this possible and we are grateful beyond words to you for helping us to give hope and relief to so many.
The work we have done supporting people with breast cancer continues with fantastic organizations like Shanti’s Margot Murphy Women’s Cancer Program in San Francisco, and the Mana’olana Pink Paddlers in Maui. Please check out the incredible work they are doing and support them with your donations: https://www.shanti.org/programs-services/margot-murphy-womens-cancer-program/ and http://www.manaolanapinkpaddlersmaui.org/
We are also grateful that in doing this work we have been able to honor the life of our namesake, Marina U’ilani Bermudez, whose generous and kind spirit has guided us over the years. Those of you who knew U’ilani understand that she embodied the true meaning of aloha and we hope that we shared that aloha with you as you helped us care for breast cancer survivors through the years.
