JKCC Benefit Shows that Together We Can Make a Difference


Hundreds gathered at The Diamond Club at Citizens Bank Park on March 1 – including this year’s Woman of Courage Award Recipient, Lillian M.J. Dixon and NY Giants linebacker and cancer survivor Mark Herzlich, in support of patients and families facing cancer at Together We Can, the bi-annual benefit for the Joan Karnell Cancer Center (JKCC) at Pennsylvania Hospital.

Shown here is the Joan Karnell Cancer Center Team at its bi-annual benefit, Together We Can!

The benefit exceeded expectations, raising $325,000. Proceeds from Together We Can provide vital support and hope for patients and families facing cancer. For such patients, the JKCC at Pennsylvania hospital offers progressive, comprehensive cancer care. Through the generous support of donors, the JKCC is able to offer supportive services which reduce suffering, relieve symptoms and provide hope.
