Project Amelia

Project Amelia

Project Amelia is an all-volunteer effort organized by friends and family of 28-year-old freelance photographer, Amelia Coffaro. Amelia was diagnosed in February 2013 with Stage 3b Inflammatory Breast Cancer. At the time, Amelia, like many young professionals, was uninsured.

Because of the aggressive nature of her cancer, doctors insisted Amelia begin treatment right away. On February 14, 2013, Valentine’s Day, she began chemotherapy.

The nature of this treatment makes it nearly impossible for Amelia to work and as the costs are high, all of us at Project Amelia are working to raise funds for her medical bills. Our fundraising goal is $100,000.

Please join us in our effort by spreading the word and making a donation. Every cent counts.
