The Paige S. Tibbetts Legacy Fund

provides grants to eligible young adults getting treatment at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. The grants help patients pay rent, cover child care, buy groceries — whatever it takes so they can focus 100 percent of their energy on getting better. Our goal is to provide a financial bridge to their recovery.

The Paige S. Tibbetts Legacy Fund was established on a simple premise: no one should have to fight cancer on their own.

Throughout her treatment, Paige recognized that not all young cancer patients have a strong emotional, and financial support so early on in their lives. The Paige S. Tibbetts fund was established in Paige’s name after her passing to alleviate those unique burdens young cancer patients face. The grants are awarded to eligible patients between the ages of 25-35 who are receiving treatment at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia, applied to everything from car payments to childcare to rent and utilities.

Too often young patients are forced to battle cancer on two fronts — one physical and one financial. In honor of Paige, our goal is to provide a financial bridge to their recovery so that no one has to fight cancer alone.
