About the Foundation:
Laurie Mezzalingua, a breast cancer patient for 12 years, established the Saint Agatha Foundation to provide financial assistance to individuals in Central New York State who are afflicted with breast cancer. The Foundation is dedicated to providing support, comfort and care to breast cancer patients through financial assistance programs. The Saint Agatha Foundation provides support, allowing patients to focus on their treatment, not their bills.
In 2018 alone, the Saint Agatha Foundation assisted 750 women and their families by providing grants to hospitals and organizations in six counties. Over the last decade, the Foundation has provided financial assistance to more than 6,500 breast cancer patients by providing grants in excess of $11 million to local hospitals and partner organizations.
The Foundation thanks our grantees and partners for their commitment to the Saint Agatha program and patients. Foundation grantees and partners include:
