About Amy's Fund
Amy's Fund is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 to honor the life and memory of Amy Lynn Kligge Vengels, who lost her battle with cervical cancer at the young age of 28. Amy's mother Denise and sister Kelly-Ann established this special fund as a lasting tribute to Amy, and with the hopes of increasing awareness and research funds for cervical cancer.
While the fund was originally focused exclusively on cervical cancer, many of the fund's volunteers have been touched by other forms of this terrible disease. In honor of them and Amy, the fund is focusing its work on promoting awareness and raising funds for ALL women’s cancers.
With your help, we can strike out women’s cancers!
Be sure to come out and support Amy's Fund!

Amy's Fund at Fox Chase Cancer Center
Amy's Fund has partnered with Fox Chase Cancer Center, one of the nation’s first hospitals devoted exclusively to cancer care. In 2009, Fox Chase opened the region’s first comprehensive Women’s Cancer Center, bringing together leading oncologists in breast and gynecologic cancers to provide women with state-of-the-art care and support.
Funds raised by Amy's Fund will support the Women's Cancer Center at Fox Chase Cancer Center. With our help, we hope to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
