The Marla Ceely Lamb Fund is a special fund which helps defray the costs of transportation and lodging for patients who must travel off-island for cancer treatment. Hundreds of patients suffering from cancer have been helped over the years, thanks to the fundraising efforts of Marla’s family and friends and the generosity of the Nantucket community.
The Marla Ceely Lamb Fund operates separately from the Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket Fund. Each is funded by separate donations; support of both funds is key to their success. Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket Foundation manages and administers the funds for the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund while Marla’s family raises the funds.

To quote one patient, whose words echo those of many others, “I was so grateful for the help I received from the Marla Ceely Lamb Fund. Not only was it a great help financially, but the support I received from the staff made me feel truly cared for. I couldn’t believe that a fund like this existed.” It does, thanks to local support!
There are so many stories of how the Marla Lamb Fund has helped the community.
