2021 Gingham Gala — A Journey of Gratitude

Thank you for joining us at the 2021 Gingham Gala! While it looked different this year, it was evening that brought our community safely together again, made our hearts full of gratitude and uplifted our spirits!

Please take a few minutes to hear stories of gratitude written by patients, and read by their caregivers. It's a genuinely inspiring reminder of the sense of appreciation shared between the patients, physicians, staff, and the generous community who has helped make our Cancer Institute possible.

Thank You for Your Support!

About the Event Beneficiary: The Cancer Patient Support Fund

In recognition of the financial burden cancer treatment has on patients and their families, generous donors helped establish the Cancer Patient Support Fund in 2009.

The Fund helps the Cancer Institute deliver on its promise of providing patients with a vast array of services to support the mind, body and spirit of patients and families by easing financial burdens and reducing stress a patient may be experiencing.

The Cancer Patient Support Fund is maintained through community support to ensure cancer patients undergoing treatment at the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute have access to resources to assist with daily living expenses. This financial safety net allows patients and their family members to focus on healing, rather than the financial stress that may result from undergoing cancer care.

For example, monies from the Fund are used to help offset the costs of transportation to and from treatment, to pay utility bills and/or rent when patients are on leave without pay and have no income to sustain expenses, or to help purchase supplies and/or offset other unexpected or emergency expenses.

“I cannot thank you enough for the support. This cancer journey has been the most difficult time of my life. Trying to maintain medical benefits, keeping a roof over our heads and staying timely in bill payments is constantly on my mind. Again thank you…”
