Donations support organization’s cancer services including financial assistance, clinical and support services
Vineland, NJ (May 13, 2022) – With its recent donation of $50,000 to the Inspira Health Foundation, the Bill Bottino Cancer Foundation has now given more than $550,000 in support of Inspira Health’s Cancer Services. The generous gifts from the Bottino family support a dedicated fund that provides patients with financial assistance for essential non-medical bills such as food, household supplies, and utilities. Funds from the Bottino Cancer Foundation also support clinical and support services provided at Inspira’s Frank and Edith Scarpa Regional Cancer Pavilion in Vineland.
“The generous philanthropic support of the Bottino family has touched the lives of families throughout South Jersey that have faced a diagnosis of cancer,” said Peter Kaprielyan, chief development officer, Inspira Health Foundation. “Their desire to assist our patients and families, and to reduce the burden cancer places on our community is truly an inspiration for all of us.”
The Bill Bottino Cancer Foundation was officially established in 2016, following years of the Bottino family’s active and generous support of the locally-based Barbara Cook Cancer Foundation. It was named in honor of the Bottino family patriarch, who lost his life to cancer in 2006. Since 2011, the Foundation has made 11 large donations in support of Inspira’s Cancer Services, while also supporting other local cancer programs.
