Ellen Swirsky Obituary, Death – With heavy hearts, we share the news of the passing of our dear founder, Ellen Swirsky. Last week, surrounded by her loving family, Ellen peacefully left this world, leaving behind a legacy that has touched the lives of countless cancer patients and their families.
Ellen was an extraordinary individual, an inspiration to so many, and a beacon of hope for those navigating the challenging journey of cancer. Her passion and dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of others were evident in everything she did.
In 1994, Ellen’s vision gave birth to the Looking Forward Program, a lifeline for cancer patients seeking guidance, support, and understanding during their battle with this formidable disease. Her commitment to providing resources, comfort, and hope to those in need has continued to this day, and the program stands as a testament to her unwavering determination.
Ellen’s generosity knew no bounds. Even during her so-called “retirement” years spent in Louisiana and Florida, she continued to reach out to and support those affected by cancer. Her selflessness and tireless efforts to make the world a better place were a shining example for all who had the privilege of knowing her.
As we bid farewell to Ellen, we carry forward her legacy of compassion, kindness, and resilience. Her memory will forever be a guiding light, reminding us of the positive impact one person can have on the lives of many. Ellen’s spirit lives on in the countless individuals she touched and the lives she helped transform.
In her honor, let us recommit ourselves to the mission she so passionately championed. Let us continue to offer support, hope, and encouragement to cancer patients and their families, just as Ellen did for so many years.
Rest in peace, our dear friend, until we meet again. Your love and dedication will forever inspire us, and your memory will live on in the hearts of all those you touched.
