Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Foundation Joins Forces with PAF to Help Children Experiencing Healthcare Challenges

February 26, 2014 – Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) is pleased to announce
the receipt of a contribution from the Promise Circle of the Jeff

child is prevented from getting care, “ stated Beth Patterson, President of
Mission Delivery for PAF. “We are extremely honored to receive this charitable

children's health organizations since its establishment 15 years ago.
