With its recent donation of $35,000 to the Inspira Health Foundation, the Bill Bottino Cancer Foundation has now given more than $644,500 in support of Inspira Health’s cancer services in Vineland.

The generous gifts from the Bottino family support a dedicated fund that provides patients with financial assistance for essential nonmedical bills such as food, household supplies and utilities. Funds from the Bottino Cancer Foundation also support clinical and support services provided at Inspira’s Frank and Edith Scarpa Regional Cancer Pavilion at Inspira Medical Center Vineland.

“The Bottino family remains a beacon in the South Jersey community through their philanthropy,” Gary Galloway, board chair, Inspira Health Foundation, said. “The Bottinos’ donation will shine a light during dark times for many of our cancer patients and families, reducing some of the burdens they are experiencing.”

The Bill Bottino Cancer Foundation was officially established in 2016, following years of the Bottino family’s active and generous support of the locally-based Barbara Cook Cancer Foundation. It was named in honor of the Bottino family patriarch, who lost his life to cancer in 2006. Since 2011, the foundation has made 11 large donations in support of Inspira’s cancer services, while also supporting other local cancer programs.
