On behalf of the Penn Medicine LG Health Foundation and the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute, thank you for your support of the 2023 Gingham Gala.
Your kindness and generosity helped raise over $180,000 for the Cancer Patient Support Fund which provides a financial safety net to cancer patients and their families so they can focus on healing rather than the financial stress that may result from the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
This time lapse video of a live digital painting created at the Gala captures some of the evening’s highlights, including the presentation of the inaugural Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute Founding Medical Director’s Award presented to Penn Medicine’s Dr. Carl June for his extraordinary contributions to cancer care. (Credit: Jeremy Sutton Studios)

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…”
