Linda Bickel Grassi, raised in Wildwood Crest and a graduate of  Wildwood High School, was a Glenwood Avenue Elementary School teacher in Wildwood, NJ for 20 years. She was fondly known to everyone as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. 

When diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Linda’s close friends and co-workers came together to raise funds to help defray the enormous costs of her treatment and the ancillary expenses.  

Even though Linda lost her battle with cancer in May of 1994 at the age of 46, the work and the love continue through the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Inc.  Visit the About Us section to find out more.

Ladies of Rutgers Cooperative Extension in Cape May County Go Pink for Love of Linda!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The Ladies of Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) in Cape May County got an early jump on showing their support by coming together on September 28th for a worthy cause.

RCE Staff and some of their friends had pink hair extensions added to their hair by Susan Grippen-Kane, of Susie Q’S on Route 50 in the Family Center, Seaville, New Jersey, for Breast Cancer Awareness and also made a donation to benefit the Love of Linda Cancer Fund. Marilou Rochford, Department Head of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, said, “Members of our Extension family are survivors and some are still battling cancer, so we wanted to come together to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness.” “The event was also a wonderful bonding opportunity for our staff,” added Rochford.

The $220 raised by the ladies of Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County is being donated to the Love of Linda Cancer Fund.
