LAKEVILLE—The Jane Lloyd Fund is seeking donations to continue its mission of helping cancer victims in the Northwest Connecticut.
Founded by the Lloyd family 16 years ago after Jane Lloyd lost her eight-year battle with cancer, the fund seeks to perpetuate the generous support she received from her community when unable to work during her sickness.
“We are a unique fund providing direct support for cancer patients’ day-to-day living expenses,” fund organizers said in a statement.
“Our goal is simple: to raise funds in the name of Jane Lloyd to help individuals battling cancer in Northwest Connecticut live more comfortably and with dignity in their own home during treatment,” the statement continued.
The fund benefits patients living or working in Kent, Salisbury, Canaan, Sharon, Falls Village and Cornwall.
Because of the generosity of community members in the Northwest Corner, every person seeking financial support in the past 16 years has received it, including eight families from Kent, fund organizers said.
