Harvest of Hope

Our 11th Annual Gala was to be held at Heinz Field on May 9, 2019. Unfortunately, this event had to be postponed due to our Director, Mr. George Matta's, diagnosis of a brain tumor.  The Gala was rescheduled for October 3, 2020, however, in light of the current COVID pandemic, we were asked to not follow through wit these plans.

In Lieu of the Gala, we are reaching out to ask for financial support to enable us to continue to provide our cancer services, as well as allow us to make our envisioned Cancer Resource Center a realilty. 


Please consider a monetary gift.  Click the "Donate" button at the top of the page.


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.
