On August 26th 2002, at the age of 9 and just days away from starting 4th grade at St.Pius X, Elana Renee Brophy lost her battle with pediatric cancer – Rhabomyosarcoma. The Elana Brophy Memorial Foundation (formally the Elana Brophy Memorial Scholarship Fund) was originally formed to award a scholarship each year to a graduating student from St. Pius X School, where Elana attended, moving on to catholic high school. This year they became the “EBMF” and with the funds raised we hope to not only continue the scholarship in Elana’s name, but also reach out to other organizations with donations to help with their mission to help others, in a variety of different ways.
