The Foundation had the honor of assisting the following families with their financial burden while undergoing treatment at Jefferson University Hospital:

Derek was diagnosed with an aggressive form of non-Hodgkins Burkitts Lymphoma in February 2016; he is unable to work for several months while undergoing treatment. Derek has three young children: 8 yrs., 6 yrs., and 15 months old. The Foundation is proud to provide payment for a pool membership and swim lessons for the kids this summer.

Suzanne was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer stage IIIB in May 2015. She had to leave her full-time teaching position to receive treatment at Jefferson. The foundation has helped her with child care expenses for her young children.

Rachel, a 43 year old mother of four children ages 7 through 16 years was able to enroll her kids in their local YMCA summer camp through the help of the Foundation while undergoing chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer.

Galit, a 43 year old busy mom of 5 and 6 year old girls undergoing chemotherapy treatments for colorectal cancer.  We helped her with financial assistance for childcare expenses and peace of mind that children were taken care of in her absence.

Denise, a 46 year old mom with 4 children between the ages of 5 and 12 with breast cancer undergoing numerous rounds of chemotherapy, two mastectomies and radiation twice a day for 39 treatments.  The Foundation helped her with babysitting costs.  Mom relied heavily on a babysitter to get her kids to and from school.  The foundation was able to assist with those babysitting costs.

Mark, a 42 year old father diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia received a bone marrow transplant in June.  The Foundation was able to send his three children to camp this summer during his treatment and recovery.

Lorriena, a 35 year old single mom of three children diagnosed with lymphoma struggling to balance chemotherapy treatments and caretaking responsibilities.  The Foundation was able to help send her children to camp while she was undergoing treatment during the summer.

Christopher, a 45 year old father with acute myeloid leukemia recently received a bone marrow transplant.  His wife was able to visit him in the hospital without having to worry about childcare for their two children, ages 6 and 12. Camp fees were paid by the Foundation.
