Examples of programs that the BCH Foundation supports within the Patient
Experience category include:
Red Lipstick Fund
The Red Lipstick Fund was created by three Boulder women -- Helayne Jones,
Anne Beer and Fran Ryan -- who listened to their friend, Marsha Moritz,
relate stories about the intense difficulty cancer patients faced in navigating
through their treatment with limited resources. Marsha would ask, “How
can they do it -- getting to and from chemo, picking up drugs, taking
care of home chores, keeping appointments -- without funds and personal
Marsha, who passed away from breast cancer in September of 2010, was a
role model of dignity and an advocate for helping those in need. Helayne,
Anne and Fran named the Red Lipstick Fund in honor of Marsha, who always
wore red lipstick. The fund offers financial assistance to cancer patients
in need and will pay for whatever a patient needs -- medication, shelter,
food and heat – giving that person one less thing to worry about.
