Our sole focus is on providing financial assistance to cancer patients and their families. A significant amount of money is primarily dedicated to research and treatment. While both offer a critical value, we have found that the financial burden that a cancer diagnosis can cause is just as significant. The distress impacts a patient and their family socially, emotionally, and physically.
Our resources are collected through our annual fundraising events; JP Fund Clarion Classic (basketball tournament), JP Fund Golf Tournament, 100 Inning Baseball Game, and more fundraisers. In addition, we disburse the funds to the Falck Cancer Center, Guthrie Cancer Center, and Care First (Hospice).
We also have a unique partnership with WINK (Women in Pink). WINK was started by local women looking to provide financial support to all women cancer patients in our community. So regardless of your diagnosis, all women are eligible for financial aid.
The Josh Palmer Fund also provides up to $5,000 annual scholarships to graduating student-athletes from high schools in Chemung, Steuben, Schuyler, and Tioga County (PA). Help us exceed our goals today!
