South Jersey Cancer Fund Receives $5,000 Grant from Wawa Foundation
Wawa Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to the South Jersey Cancer Fund for providing direct assistance to cancer patients in Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland Counties. More specifically, the grant will help defray costs to cancer patients in need of financial help for prescriptions, medical supplies, food supplements, prostheses, transportation costs, respite care, special equipment, COBRA payments, and utilities.
“When insurance coverage is insufficient, costs of this type can be financially devastating to the patients as well as their families,” says Mary Crane, SJCF President. “Thanks to supporters like the Wawa Foundation, we have been able to provide aid to hundreds of cancer patients over the years. To this end, Wawa unites our common goal of making a difference in the lives of cancer patients who struggle with meeting their financial obligations right here in our own community.”
Anne Breyer, SJCF Treasurer, is thrilled to receive the $5,000 check from the Wawa Foundation. Says Anne, “We are gratified that Wawa believes in our work enough to give us this grant. Thank you for your trust in us.”
