To provide financial assistance to Cape May County cancer patients who are undergoing treatment for the disease.

Linda Bickel Grassi, raised in Wildwood Crest and a graduate of Wildwood High School, was a Glenwood Avenue Elementary School teacher in Wildwood, NJ for 20 years. She was fondly known to everyone as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend.

When diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Linda’s close friends and co-workers raised funds to help defray the enormous costs of her treatment and ancillary expenses. Even though Linda lost her battle with cancer in May of 1994 at the age of 46, the work and the love continue through the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Inc.

We have assisted more than 1400 cancer patients since our inception in 1994 and have disbursed over 1.2 million dollars to cancer patients throughout Cape May County.

Love of Linda is supported by planned fundraising activities throughout the year. In addition to the "Love of Linda" fundraisers, various other organizations and office co-workers have raised money on our behalf. And our greatest source of revenue comes from memorial contributions.
