The Trina Fund


The Trina Fund was established in 2009 by Appleton resident Trina Reynolds after her breast cancer diagnosis. Trina wanted to make sure that transportation was not a barrier to treatment – or for a second opinion – to other women with breast cancer. We were saddened when Trina lost her courageous battle on October 2, 2011 at the age of 49.

Funding for Women Battling Breast Cancer

A gift to The Trina Fund will help female residents of Wisconsin diagnosed with breast cancer obtain the best possible care, including, but not limited to, travel to accredited cancer treatment centers throughout the United States.

Note: The Women’s Fund can not directly support individuals.

If you are a woman with breast cancer, talk to your medical provider or patient navigator. If you are health care provider or nonprofit organization that provides services to cancer patients, contact Julie Keller at [email protected] or (920) 702-7617 for information about how you can help your patients access assistance. Checks will be issued directly to the referring organization.
