Elderlaw and Cancer Advocacy Projects: Ellen Frank, Solo Practitioner

Ellen Frank has been a volunteer with the Justice Center’s Elderlaw and Cancer Advocacy Projects since 2014. Ms. Frank has helped numerous low-income cancer patients and survivors as well as elderly clients to prepare their life planning documents. She selflessly travels to meet homebound clients who otherwise may have no way to document their wishes – including, recently, a homebound veteran and cancer survivor, and an elderly client who lost his daughter.
