“Working out is my way of saying to cancer, ‘You’re trying to invade my body; you’re trying to take me away from my daughters, but I’m stronger than you. And I’m going to hit harder than you.” – Stuart Scott

Harvest of Hope

The Harvest of Hope Gala is our major annual fundraising event.  Proceeds from the Gala enable the JMD organization to carry out the day to day services and operations of the Cancer Resource Center, as well as supplemental programs offered free of charge to all cancer patients in need.


The Board members of the JMDF hope you and your families are safe and healthy. We urge you adhere to the social distancing recommendations to help us get through the unprecedented time.


For the safety of our volunteers and patients we have temporarily suspended services at McKeesport Hospital.


Thank you for the support you have shown to our cancer foundation and our volunteers during these most difficult of times.  We will continue to update you about our foundation including any updates or re-opening information via email, our website and social media.  We look forward to the day when we can welcome our volunteers and patients back .  Please be safe and stay healthy.


Our annual Harvest of Hope Gala has been rescheduled for Saturday October 3, 2020 at Heinz field.
