About

Your gift to the Paige S. Tibbetts Legacy Fund alleviates the financial burden that cancer has on young adults, so they can focus on getting better. With your help, we can continue to build a financial bridge for eligible young adults receiving cancer care at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Hospital.  

The Paige S. Tibbetts Legacy Fund was established in 2017 to honor Paige's wish to help young cancer patients. She believed that no one should have to face cancer on their own. Young people with little or no savings are especially vulnerable. Thanks to the generosity of those supporting the fund, more than 150 cancer patients between the ages of 25 and 35 have received help to pay rent, cover child care, buy grocerieswhatever it takes so they can focus 100 percent of their energy on getting better.  

Here's how your gift will help: 

  • A gift of $250 funds meal delivery for one week.
  • A gift of $300 pays a month's worth of utilities for one patient. 
  • A gift of $1,500 covers rent for one patient. 
  • A gift of $15,000 supports a patient's living expenses for six months or child-care for up to one year. 

For more information, please visit Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center.
