|Salute to Dave Coburn|
|Hello Friends and Family,|
I am excited to say that I will be fundraising again this year for Dana Farber in the second annual Sunrise to Sunset Golf Tournament. Last year was a phenomenal first year and I was blown away by the support I received from you all and it helped me in more ways than you know.
The reason I joined this Dana Farber fundraiser was in the wake of my amazing mother Jeanneís passing in 2015. I felt that I needed to do more and get involved directly and that I did. Last year I was the number two fundraiser for the entire tournament of which I could NOT have done without your amazing support, again very touching.
Last year I played in memory of my Mom and always will. This year I will be playing in memory of a dear friend of mine Dave Coburn, who at the age of 76 passed away on July 19, 2017. Dave was diagnosed about 20 years ago with prostate cancer and fought through endless treatments over the years, he was tough as nails. Dave was a great influence on my young adult life. He had the most perfect log cabin up in Victory Vermont (population 50) on the side of Umpire Mountain. I spent ten plus years going there for work weekends and hunting seasons. I learned a lot from Dave over the years and will forever cherish those memories, life lessons, and experiences for the rest of my life. Dave was an avid golfer so I feel like this is a perfect salute to him playing 36 holes sunrise to sunset.
Cancer needs no introduction. Everyone is far too familiar with this awful disease and its effects. That said, there are so many inspirational stories of survival to be celebrated. I believe that with continued research and advances in technology, there will be far more positive outcomes going forward.
Where does this money go? This gives you an idea.
A gift of $25 could fund the Jimmy Fund Clinic's toy closet and treasure chest, giving Dana-Farberís youngest patients a welcome distraction throughout treatment.
A gift of $35 could provide patients with personalized consultation services, such as wig fittings, to help patients feel better about themselves during their treatment.
A gift of $50 could help support more than 650 clinical trials taking place every day in Dana-Farberís relentless pursuit to conquer cancer.
A gift of $100 could help our Mammography Van reach more communities, giving women access to lifesaving breast cancer screenings and education.
A gift of $200 could fund the development of new cancer drugs.
No amount is too small everything is very much appreciated! Also many of you work at firms that have charity donation matching so leverage those if you can! All donations are tax deductible through Dana Farber/Jimmy Fund.
