The Starrlight Fund Donate's $1,200 to Tunnell Cancer Center
The Starrlight Fund donated $1,200 to the Tunnell Cancer Center to support the special needs of patients with ovarian cancer. The Starrlight Fund, held at the Delaware Community Foundation, was established by Tammy Brittingham, her husband Mike Pelrine and her son Eban Brittingham of Lewes. The money was donated in memory of Tammy Brittingham, who died in July 2010 from ovarian cancer.
The money is earmarked to assist women with ovarian cancer who live in Kent and Sussex Counties and who experience urgent, short-term financial crisis brought about by or exacerbated by their cancer. The funds may be used to assist with medical and non-medical needs.
