Michelle Donio, of Buena, NJ, donated $9,000 from a fundraiser held last month in her honor to the Patient Assistance Fund at Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center - Washington Township, where she has received care since December 2020. The Patient Assistance Fund provides financial assistance with rent and utilities for those in need during cancer treatment. The presentation took place at a special event for women, titled “Innovations in Women’s Health,” recently held at Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital. Donio, a lifelong competitive equestrian and riding instructor for 30 years, thanks friend Jackie Smith of Summer Jade Stables in Waterford, NJ - where the fundraiser was held - for her ongoing support.
