The Chris Elliott Fund has been a 501(c)3 non-profit, an organization devoted to brain cancer patient advocacy and advancements in patient care, for 11 and a half years. But until now we have not had a formal Patient Support Services Center.
In July of 2013 we moved into our new Redmond, Washington offices. Previous to that we were operating for one and half years out of a shared office space at JMS Construction, who donated 2 small offices. The new office spaces are just down the street from the old Willows Road space, on 95th Street. Our current address is 14959 Northeast 95th St., Redmond, WA 98052
Between July of 2013 and the end of the year we spent several months updating and renovating the space and finding new office furniture to suit the needs of the center. For instance, we have purchased some brand new adjustable office chairs and desks for our administrative staff and receptionists. The official grand opening and ribbon cutting was held on January 3rd 2014. The event was open to the public. We were pleased to have Foundation Medicine present as a sponsor of the event as well as a glassybaby roadshow, offering glassybaby candle holders for sale. A portion of the evenings proceeds went back to CEF.
It was a fun evening, with several presentations and toasts from board members, staff and the president and founder Dellann Elliott Mydland.
New Space, New Staff, New Year
The beginning of 2014 marked several new achievements for the Chris Elliott Fund, recognizing the on-boarding of several new staff. In combination with the new staff, the new space, and several new opportunities to be unveiled in 2014, the year is proving to have a great start. Stay tuned to our press and social media pages for the announcements on the unveiling of our 2014 projects.
