CPSF is proud to be a beacon of hope for cancer patients throughout Vermont and to recognize the more than 500 families served during our 20th anniversary year. This past year we were honored to be chosen as the beneficiary for several amazing fundraising events: Dragonheart Vermont’s annual Dragon Boat Festival, 5th annual Golfing4Life tournament, Awesome Open, the Get Your Rear In Gear virtual 5K, and Vergennes Day Race. We formed a partnership with North Country Federal Credit Union to create a rural transportation fund for patients, knowing that traveling long distances for treatment can be expensive. Through these events and the valued support of our community, we continued to assist Vermont cancer patients at a time when hospitals and other community partners were stretched thin.

Nearly $50,000 was raised at the Cancer Patient Support Foundation's 20th Anniversary Celebration. Since its inception CPSF has supported over 10,800 families awarding over $2,840,000. Tim Kavanagh, a long-time supporter of CPSF and an advocate for cancer patients, was awarded the 1st every CPSF Daisy Award. A new Emergency Fund, the Pomerleau Fund, was announced at the celebration ensuring that more Vermont cancer patients can be supported during their treatment.
