Cancer. It’s an ugly word. And a dangerous foe.


Saving Lives Foundation Update

On May 10, 2021, Saving Lives Foundation lost a dear friend and co-founder. Matt Cohen, who was one of the original founders of the foundation passed away from complications related to his battle with cancer. Matt was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2016 and had battled the disease since. Matt will be sorely missed.

In June, 2023 Saving Lives Foundation was proud to be part of the Hatboro-Horsham High School Senior Awards night. We awarded 1 scholarship to a senior whose family has been directly impacted by the financial burdens of cancer treatment. This was the 9th year that the Joan Armstrong Memorial Scholarship, named in honor of Co-Founder Lori Ferris’ mother, was presented and including this year’s recipients Saving Lives Foundation has committed $80,000 in scholarships.

Saving Lives Foundation Updates
All funds generated through our activities are distributed back to patients and their families who are struggling from the financial burdens of cancer treatment. In 2016, the foundation launched the Joan Armstrong Memorial Scholarship at Hatboro-Horsham High School. Through this scholarship program, we award renewable 4 year $1,000/year scholarships to high school seniors whose immediate families have been personally impacted by the emotional and financial burdens of treatment for cancer. In 2023 we provided 1 scholarship ($1,000/year for 4 years) to a senior at Hatboro-Horsham High School whose immediate family has been impacted by cancer. Including this year’s awards, Saving Lives Foundation has committed $80,000 in scholarships to Hatboro Horsham High School students over the past 7 years.

In 2023 we added new providers to our support portfolio. In addition to Abington Rosenfeld Cancer Center at Abington Hospital and Doylestown Hospital/Penn Radiation at Doylestown, we provided assistance to patients referred from Grand View Cancer Center, Holy Redeemer’s Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center @ Cooper, Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson, and Cancer Alliance. In 2023 we provided assistance to 33 patients that were in need of financial relief. We recently helped a family that was going to have their water turned off due to lack of payment; helped another family with rent payments; assisted another with critical house repairs. Our events such as our golf outing also help us raise the funds to continue our mission.
