The Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund
Bob Perks was a native of State College, Pennsylvania. He attended State College High School and received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at The Pennsylvania State University. Bob was an avid sports fan and a four-year member of the Penn State baseball team.
He was devoted to helping cancer patients long before facing his own challenges with the disease. He was a founding member of Coaches vs. Cancer locally and remained active with the organization until his own battle with cancer prevented him from doing so. It was his goal to bring cancer support to our local community. In hopes of fulfilling his wishes, we have established the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund.
The Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund was established to provide financial support for basic necessities to individuals and families dealing with cancer.
