Phyllis Barbara Gremillion passed away from complications of Stomach Cancer on October 22, 2014. Phyllis was a generous and giving person and the way she lived her life was an inspiration to many. During their journey with cancer, Phyllis and her husband encountered many people who did not qualify for general financial assistance, but were still struggling to make ends meet. They found people who were alone, were single parents, and many with families, all of whom were making daily decisions as to if they could purchase a meal or pay their bills from home. During their times at the cancer center, the Gremillion’s chose to regularly purchase meals and pay small bills for cancer patients and caregivers. In the memory of Phyllis, we continue to help as many people as possible so they can focus on the fight for their lives and maybe take a little bit of the worry of bills and the cost of treatment off of them.
Per the American Cancer Society, almost 1,600 Americans die from cancer each day. For the year 2014 only 8,490 American women died of Stomach Cancer. Phyllis was one of those that did not survive. As survival rates for many cancers improve and new technologies are developed, these are still people and not statistics that are suffering and can use our support.

While the Gremillion’s battled cancer they saw examples of the great strength and courage that many patients and caregivers exhibited. Unfortunately, they also observed the worst of humanity as many of these people were alone, had been abandoned, or were struggling financially. Imagine those patients whose spouses, families, or friends abandoned them in their worst time of need. Unfortunately, these situations were observed regularly. Where many cancer charities focus on raising funds to cure cancer, The Hudson Project targets showing love and compassion directly to both patients and caregivers, either through group based programs or individual gifting.
The founder taught his family the joy of feeding people. The family would pick someone in a restaurant that appeared to treat the staff nice and ordered conservatively. They would work with a server to pay for the person’s meal and sometimes also deliver desert. The stipulation was that the server had to wait until after they left to tell the recipient or the gift. The founder’s wife, who was to later pass away due to her cancer, followed this tradition one day prior to her diagnosis, however the server did not understand the need to be anonymous. The lady who received the gift came to her before she could leave and told her that she was alone and had just been told she had cancer. The gift made the recipient’s day just a little brighter. This tradition was carried on to the Cancer Center as they saw people counting change, eating just the bare minimum, or simply not eating.
Individual gifting or personal expense relief generally targets later stage cancer patients, patients with an expected long term need for treatment, or those whose personal situation and their cancer treatment causes a verifiable financial hardship. Potential recipients can be verifiable cancer patients or caregivers. Gifts can be targeted for general or specific needs. General need gifting is provided as a cash gift to be used by the recipient as needed. Examples of specific needs include short term lodging assistance for outpatient treatment, providing assistance for utility bills, or support child or pet care required during treatment.Either form of gifting can target cancer patients or caregivers.
