Since 2005, the Bonnie Hilghman Cancer Fund has given more than $78,000 in grants to help residents of the Mid-Shore who are fighting cancer.

The mission of the Bonnie Hilghman Cancer Fund is to help nonprofit organizations, which provide services to cancer patients, including chemotherapy, necessary medications, transportation costs, child care, housekeeping or nursing care. Grants also have gone to support UM Shore Regional Health, the Regional Cancer Center and the Choptank Community Health System.
