Good afternoon,
My name is Matt Bigelli and I am one of the managing directors of the Phillipsburg Area Summer Youth Theatre, formerly PSYT. I am contacting you today because we are in need of some assistance in helping Kathy Hartman.
For a few years now, Ms. Hartman has been battling many forms of cancer and this past fall she was diagnosed at Stage 4 and incurable. Though chemotherapy has worked in the past and she undergone many surgeries, the cancer keeps returning. Ms. Hartman has been in high spirits throughout this medical journey, but is starting to take a toll on her.

Even though she has been going for treatments and having surgeries over the years, she still manages to work three jobs throughout the whole year. She would probably not want to work as much, but financially, she is not able to do so. Some of you have expressed helping her pay some bills and this is where you can show your gratitude and support.

This is the official account. The money goes directly to Kathy Hartman.


We will be holding a benefit for Kathy on February 9 at Phillipsburg High School at 7 p.m. Rehearsal for the individual choruses will take place on that day.  


There are also additional rehearsals for Mixed Chorus and everyone who would like to sing the last two numbers on January 26 and February 2 from 2-5 p.m. at Pilgrim Presbyterian Church in Phillipsburg, NJ.


If you are interested in participating, please see the Tribute to Kathy Facebook page for more information.


Thank you in advance for your support.
Matt Bigelli
Co-managing director, PASYT

Good morning! I just want to send a quick note to all of you who have supported me over the past few months. Each day seems a little bit better. Hand & foot syndrome is still evident, but not as bad. My last Avastin treatment was postponed due to protein urea in my kidneys. Hopefully by 4/7, I can have my next treatment. 4/9 I go to Philly to see Fr. Fraker to discuss treatment options and hoping I will not have to have surgery. Trying to stay positive! Have a great day everyone & think spring!

Every day gets a bit better. Hand & foot syndrome continues, but not so bad right now. I did get an appointment with a well respected oncologic surgeon at Univ. of Penn to discuss other treatment options besides surgery and removing more of my liver. I am hoping to make a decision on treatment before May and determine if there are better options than surgery. My wonderful family, friends and colleagues continue to support me every day. What wonderful people I have in my life! I hope I can repay everyone for all they've done for me. I am truly blessed!
