About the Charities


Established in August 2000, the Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Assistance Fund began with a gift from Atlantic City businessman and philanthropist, Roy Goldberg, who created the fund after experiencing the determination and inspiration of his mother, Shirley Mae Goldberg, a breast cancer survivor and The Gold Foundation has continued the mission going forward. The goal of our organization is to benefit patients in southeastern New Jersey who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Based on the keen awareness that these individuals suffer numerous unanticipated medical, emotional and financial burdens, the Shirley Mae Fund seeks to assist those who demonstrate a financial need by offering relief for the unanticipated financial burden of purchasing prescribed breast cancer medications that exceed insurance coverage, breast prosthesis, wigs & other related items. It is our hope that, by easing the financial burden, we can lessen the hardship and stress to help facilitate a strong recovery for our friends and neighbors in need. This financial assistance is absolutely FREE and without strings for qualified applicants. The Fund continues to build through year-round donations, fundraisers and special events. The Shirley Mae Fund is run entirely by a volunteer advisory committee and the donations and money raised assist women and men of all ages who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. In order to receive financial assistance from the Fund, clients must reside, work or be under the care of a physician in Atlantic or Cape May counties, New Jersey, lower Ocean or eastern Cumberland counties, New Jersey (within a 30 mile distance from the Atlantic City Airport).  CLICK FOR MORE INFO



The Michael J. Neustadter Pancreatic Cancer Fund was created in memory of Michael Neustadter in recognition of his courageous battle and determination to beat this dreadful disease. Its mission is to support the fight against pancreatic cancer and contribute to the discovery of a cure.

Michael Neustadter lost his battle on January 19th, 2012, a year since learning he had pancreatic cancer. Despite an early diagnosis, a healthy lifestyle and some of the best medical care in the nation, the disease proved too relentless to withstand. Michael spent his life helping others and giving back to the community, from his work with numerous charities to serving as chairman of the board of the Atlanticare Health System. He would be proud to know that his name lives on as a catalyst for curing this life-threatening disease. CLICK FOR MORE INFO
