Who We Are
The Helene Foundation is a non-profit organization that was established in 2009 in honor of Helene Davidian. Although she retired from nursing when her children were born, she spent her life serving and giving to others. In May 2008, she was diagnosed with cancer and was taken from us on May 31, 2009. The Davidian family felt that establishing a Foundation in her name would allow her to continue her passion of serving and giving to others.
The Helene Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to North Carolina families with mothers actively undergoing cancer treatments. We focus on immediate, practical support and services for mothers and families fighting cancer.
The assistance we provide includes, but is not limited to, meals for the families delivered to the home, housecleaning, child care, tutoring services if needed, and assistance with arranging transportation to medical appointments. Each family and situation is unique and their services are based on the mother’s requests. The Helene Foundation strives to help families keep as normal an environment as possible while engaged in their cancer fight. Families are referred by a hospital social worker, and upon acceptance, are “adopted” for a 6 month period. Should the mother lose her fight with cancer, the family continues to receive assistance through their 6 month adoption. Since 2009, the Helene Foundation has provided over $100,000 to 32 North Carolina families!
