Help us Promote our Foundation

Please pass on the D.A.O. Memorial Foundation's information to anyone who may be in need. We provide services and individuals/families suffering from a terminal illness.

In late 2016, Stella Oravetz set out to create a foundation to serve terminally ill patients in her community. The idea came after Stella's husband, Dave, died of brain cancer leaving the family struggling to keep it together. Stella, her daughters, family, and friends set out to make sure no other family had to deal with the unexpected problems that arise from the loss of a family member. The original board consisted of Stella, her two daughters, and seven other close family friends. Together, the board turned their grief into something useful for families in their communities by gathering volunteers to help with everything from yard work to financial advising to respite care and everything in between. The D.A.O. Memorial Foundation has happily served families in need since 2017.

I am a founding board member. We are actively promoting our foundation to help others as well as increase any donations/fundraising efforts to keep on track with our mission.

D.A.O. Memorial Foundation is an approved 501c3 Non-Profit Organization designed to assist individuals and families as they cope with terminal illness/diagnosis by assisting with bill payment, financial planning, respite care, and simple housekeeping tasks.
