The Love of Linda Cancer Fund is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to Cape May County Cancer patients.
Starting with three patients the first year, we have assisted more than 2500 Cape May County cancer patients since the inception of our organization in 1994. And, we have disbursed over 1.6 million dollars throughout Cape May County to help cancer patients with their ancillary expenses. Whether it's a need for gas, tolls, childcare, or a mortgage payment . . . the list of expenses is never ending. Through the generosity of our supporters, this fund has experienced a tremendous growth because people like you care about others. It's a true testament to the volunteers and contributors, that the Love of Linda Cancer Fund has had a positive impact on the lives of Cape May County cancer patients. On behalf of our patients, we offer a sincere thank you.
The Love of Linda Cancer Fund is supported by planned fundraising activities throughout the year. You may have bought decorated pumpkins at the annual Seafarer's Weekend Festival, attended one of our spaghetti dinners, or danced to the sounds of the Sensational Soul Cruisers at our annual Beef 'N Beer.
If you are a golf enthusiast, you may have participated in one or more of the eighteen Love of Linda Cancer Fund Memorial Golf Tournaments held at the Avalon Golf Club.
In addition to the "Love of Linda" fundraisers, various other organizations and office co-workers have raised money on our behalf.
Linda Bickel Grassi, raised in Wildwood Crest and a graduate of Wildwood High School, was a Glenwood Avenue Elementary School teacher in Wildwood, NJ for 20 years. She was fondly known to everyone as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend.
When diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Linda's close friends and co-workers came together to raise funds to help defray the enormous costs of her treatment and the ancillary expenses.
Even though Linda lost her battle with cancer in May of 1994 at the age of 46, the work and the love continue through the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Inc
