Who We Are

About Our Effort

On March 4th 2011, we lost our husband and father, Bud Cuthbert to Mesothelioma. Not only were we devastated by his passing but also by the fact we had only found out about his disease 2 months prior to his death. Mesothelioma is an incredibly aggressive cancer and one that has no cure. Not only is our Foundation here to honor Bud and the great man that he was, but to help those patients and families that will be stricken with mesothelioma in the future. Bud was proud of the fact that his treatments might one day help another husband and father fight this disease and it is our hope that the Cuthbert Cancer Foundation will help make this happen.

Over the past 4 years, the Cuthbert Cancer Foundation donated over $200,000 to the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Penn and established the Bud Cuthbert Research and Patient Care Fund. This fund will advance mesothelioma research and aide those effected by this disease. The Cuthbert Cancer Foundation has pledged a total of $250,000 over 5 years.

Bud Cuthbert Bio

No Man Is An Island

These infamous words were spoken all too often when my husband of forty years, Bud Cuthbert, was going through a trial study for Mesothelioma. This fatal cancer took Bud's life within two months of the diagnosis. Once Bud was diagnosed, through a team of specialists from University of Pennsylvania, he was accepted as a candidate to join this trial study. Bud wanted not only to extend his life but to contribute to research. He was hoping that through his surgery and study he could give something back to the medical profession. He shared with his doctors that whatever came from his surgery and case were not to be in vain. His death came so quickly but not at all in vain. In the very short time that Bud was in this study, he was able to contribute to research that deals with Mesothelioma, a lung cancer that usually attacks victims that have dealt with asbestos. Since this cancer does not acquaint itself with the person for years it is hard to detect. Bud was a devoted husband, a wonderful father, a loving grandfather and a proud veteran who's life ended all too soon. Our Family would like to give back to this research to aid the next Father, Husband and/or Grandfather who could be stricken with this aggressive cancer. Therefore the family of Bud Cuthbert introduces you to the Cuthbert Cancer Foundation. In Bud's name we want to continue to contribute to cancer research. If we can reach out to you and you can contribute in any way we can honestly say that "No Man Is An Island" .
