Taking the John Elliott experience forward.
The profound effect John Elliott has had on his patients deserves to be brought to more people who in turn can embrace the belief that making things better for mothers can be a reality. When someone dedicates his or her life to the pursuit of elevating the human experience, there will be others who will connect and want to carry that vision forward. In essence, this is what the john elliott foundation does.
Dr. Elliott's patients seek honesty and optimism.
For too many years to count, mothers and families from across the United States, have sought out Dr. Elliott to help them with their at-risk pregnancies. His straightforward, positive attitude reassures them that they are in great hands as soon as they reach his offices.
Over the many years that Dr. Elliott has been delivering high-order multiples, mothers and families have often asked how they could say “thank you” to him for his exceptional outcomes. Because Dr. Elliott is too modest to accept any thanks, patients have wanted to make donations in his name to charities, donating unwanted baby furniture and even their own time to help other mothers and families in need. These offers kept coming and coming and soon it was apparent that people truly wanted a real way to show their appreciation to Dr. Elliott that would benefit his patients.
So, behind this groundswell of support, it was decided to establish a non-profit directed at helping mothers in need. Word has spread and donations of both money and goods started flooding into the office of Dr. Elliott. Today, more than 46,000 items have been donated and it continues to grow. All from the deep appreciation of Dr. Elliott’s former patients.
It all started over 60 years ago in Garden City, NY.
Our story begins when John was 14-years old and babysitting for a family down the street. The family's daughter, Renee, had Leukemia. Ultimately, she succumbed to that disease. This forever changed John as he swore that he would one day find a cure for Leukemia.
Once he made his way to medical school, John ultimately fell in love with taking care of mothers during his rotation in OBGYN. Delivering babies became a passion. John often thinks about Renee and although he never realized his dream to cure Leukemia, he honors her memory by putting on his mask and delivering healthy babies.
