Cancer Care

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are here to help Alumni, their spouse or minor children living at home who may be in need of assistance. It is the responsibility of all of us to get the word out! So please contact one of our members if you know of anyone who has cancer. Knowing how proud we all can be, all information and requests are kept strictly confidential. So please help us spread the word to make our brothers and sisters aware that there is help for them. We would like to thank all of those involved one way or another.
We are here to help Alumni, their spouse or child under the age of 18 living at home. If you know of an alumni, their spouse or their children who are in need of help, please email us at

To Volunteer please email us at

Donate to Support the Cancer Care Fund

Your donation supports any graduate of Milton Hershey School, their spouse or their minor child living at home, who has been diagnosed with cancer or a cancer related illness and demonstrates a financial need, is eligible for Cancer Care Funds. The maximum amount a recipient may receive in any one year is $2000, 00. The recipient’s year shall be based on the anniversary date of an approved application for funds. Funds may not be issued posthumously. An application is considered approved when the majority of the committee votes in the affirmative. Once an application is approved, a request for funds is submitted to the MHSAA Treasurer or President, and a check is issued along with a letter from the committee.
