The Brittany Miller Foundation
The Brittany Miller Foundation is a 501(c) 3
non-profit organization formed in 1995 to fill a
great need in our community. The organization
is inspired by the memory of Brittany Miller, a
Middletown, New York girl who on July 31,
1996 - her seventh birthday - died after fighting
a spirited battle against brain cancer. After
Brittany was diagnosed, her parents Dean &
Suzanne Miller discovered that in addition to
the emotional drain, families are faced with
another hardship of lodging, meals, parking,
tolls, and gasoline expenses which health
insurance doesn’t cover.
The Foundation raises funds and disperses
grants to families from their New York counties
of Orange, Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess and
Pike County, PA who have children undergoing
treatment for cancer. Specifically, these
grants are to be used to defray travel, lodging,
food and miscellaneous expenses associated
with visits to hospitals or other treatment facilities
in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut.
