Bestwick Foundation

The Bestwick Foundation has donated $25,000 since 2013 to The Bestwick Foundation Fund housed within Mount Nittany Health Foundation to support local cancer patients. The funds offer assistance to cancer patients who have extreme financial hardship due to illness, including helping with payments for mortgages, COBRA insurance, student loans or specialized therapies.

Bestwick Foundation has provided support to numerous families receiving services at Mount Nittany Medical Center by providing meal and gas gift cards, and funds to cover a month's mortgage payment and student loan payment allowing the family to concentrate on beating cancer rather than worry about how to pay bills.

Through Mount Nittany Health's cancer navigators, patients are identified and referred to the Bestwick Foundation and the Bestwick Foundation Board approves the expenditures.

"We created the Bestwick Foundation to benefit our community and support our family, friends and neighbors," said Steve Greer. "I was diagnosed with leukemia and it was difficult to handle--not only emotionally, but financially. By supporting local cancer patients at Mount Nittany Health, we can reduce the worry and stress of financial difficulties so that patients and their families can focus on recovering."
