The mission of the Bob Perks Fund is to provide financial support to eligible cancer patients living in Blair, Centre, Clearfield, and Huntingdon Counties in Central Pennsylvania who face financial hardship while undergoing cancer treatment. An eligible cancer patient must be experiencing increased expenses because of cancer or decrease income because of cancer and unable to pay for their basic expenses. Using donated dollars, the Bob Perks Fund pays for necessities such as rent, utilities, food, gas, and more so cancer patients worry less about unpaid bills and focus their energy on treatment and recovery. The Bob Perks Fund has a two-fold mission: first, to provide direct financial assistance to cancer patents who are fighting for their lives and second, to secure the donated dollars that pay for those cancer patient bills. Every donated dollar is allocated in Blair, Centre, Clearfield and Huntingdon County.
