“Dear Bestwick Foundation – Thank you for all of your hard work on the Christmas Party at the Diner that my children and I attended. You were very kind and we all had a blast. It was a very special evening and I am so grateful! I am thankful every day that there are people like you in the world.”

Tides Program

“When children lose a loved one, they have taught us they forget “how to have fun”. The Bestwick Foundation has given our families at Tides so many opportunities to put happiness back into their lives and to make lasting memories. Their selfless commitment to helping Tides is humbling and we can’t thank them enough for their incredible generosity!”

Cancer Program, Mount Nittany Medical Center

The Bestwick Foundation’s mission to provide financial support for individuals and families dealing with cancer, aligns perfectly with our goals as Patient Navigators. Financial concerns should never discourage or prevent patients from seeking treatment for their cancer. The Bestwick Foundation has provided financial assistance to a number of our patients who have needed help with mortgage payments, meals, utilities, transportation, and more. This generous support provides relief from financial stress and helps patients focus instead on fighting their disease.
