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.

Cancer Patient Support Fund
Reducing Financial Burden for Cancer Patients
- The Cancer Patient Support Fund was created in 2009 in recognition of the financial burden cancer treatment has on patients and their families.
- The Fund is supported exclusively through philanthropy and community support, and is the most heavily accessed Fund at LG Health.
- The Gingham Gala is the largest source of gifts for the Fund.
- The Fund has awarded $660,836 in funding to close to 2,000 patients since 2009.
“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…”
