On September 27th, I am participating in a fundraiser for cancer research called “Hackers For Hope”. My goal is to golf 100+ holes to raise money for important cancer research (anyone who has seen my golf game knows that is no small feat).
Cancer certainly impacts us all... for my family it hit close to home when my father was diagnosed with bile duct cancer the morning he was in Weill Cornell hospital for a heart procedure. 6 years later my dad is cancer free, but that was after multiple rounds of chemo and procedures on his lung, kidney, liver and ultimately, a 13 hour Whipple surgery. My family is so grateful to the amazing teams that helped my father... I am raising money to make sure other families experience similar results.
The money raised is given to various hospitals and medical institutions which include: Bennett Cancer Center at Stamford Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY, NY McCooey Memorial Research Fund, Weill Cornell Medical College, Donate Life CT and the Cannonball Kids Cancer Foundation. The funds go directly towards research and treatment.
Over the past 31 years, Hackers For Hope has raised over $16,000,000 to support these and other organizations--and the great thing about Hackers For Hope is that there is very minimal overhead. Nearly all the money raised is put towards the goal – finding a cure for cancer.
