Welcome

The Pat Cairo Family Foundation, Inc. was organized in 1995 to help those struggling with Cancer.  Since our inception in 1995, The Pat Cairo Family Foundation, Inc. has donated more than three million ($3,000,000) to help those struggling with cancer.

Perhaps our Foundation’s greatest achievement came on December 22, 1999 when New York Governor George Pataki signed into law an End of Life Care Bill which ensured quality end of life care for thousands of terminally ill cancer patients. Specifically the law requires insurance companies and HMO’s to pay for treatment of terminally ill patients at acute care specialty hospitals. Since the Bill’s passage, hundreds of cancer patients who otherwise would have been denied coverage for admission and treatment at Calvary have spent their final days being cared for at Calvary.  In recognition of the Foundation’s efforts, Calvary Hospital, on March 4, 2000, named the third floor south wing of the hospital “Patricia A. Cairo Hall”. Only once more in its 104th year history has Calvary Hospital so recognized an individual.


“Your outstanding philanthropy ensures that we can maintain the high quality of our care, for the benefit of our patients and their loved ones.”
Frank A. Calamari - President, Calvary Hospital
“Without your support, I would not have been able to accomplish my research and involvement at national level in cancer policy issues.”
Carolyn D. Runowicz, MD - Past President of the American Cancer Society,
“Your support makes it possible for us to continue serving the ongoing health care needs of our community.”
Joseph Lamantia – Executive Director, North Shore LIJ Franklin Hospital
“All that we have accomplished would be impossible without your support.  Thanks for all you do…”
Lisa, Micheal, Kevin, Shane - Pat's Children, The Pat Cairo Family Foundation, Inc.
