This Friday, I am participating in a golf fundraiser for cancer research called “Hackers For Hope”. The Hackers organization raises money every year for important cancer research.
I know that this horrible disease has touched many of you as it has me. My brother lost his life to Leukemia when he was just 13 years old - he would have lived today because of the advances in cancer research which are made possible due to generous donations and organizations like Hackers.
The money raised by the Hackers organization 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.
