Steel Lillies Fund
The Steel Lillies Fund created by the Bayer family of La Plata, MD, “to support and bring awareness to ‘non-breast’ cancers.” The family understands the importance of breast cancer awareness, and has participated in fundraisers for that effort. “However we desperately want to increase awareness around all cancers, as they are all devastating, and those suffering from all of the various cancers need the same kind of support and attention given to those with breast cancer,” stated Ms. Bayer. The Steel Lillies Fund was created in honor of their sister, Tiffany, who has been battling Sarcoma since being diagnosed in February 2011. The name comes from the steel rods put in Tiffany’s back to support her spine after the removal of several large tumors and ‘Lillies’ comes from Tiffany’s last name ‘Lill’. Their goal is to raise funds and awareness, but also to empower those who are battling this disease. The Steel Lillies Fund was created as a Seedling Fund, where the Fund can take in contributions but is not allowed to distribute grants until it reaches the minimum allowed. They are planning 2 annual fundraisers, one locally and one in Rochester, NY where Tiffany resides, including a 5k this summer.
