As many of you know, one of the first things I did after being diagnosed with advanced pc was to establish a non-profit foundation, the Faith - Love - Hope - Win Foundation. The simple mission of this foundation is to raise awareness of the importance of testing and early detection and to raise money to fund the research required to develop improved treatments and ultimately, a cure. In just three and a half years we have donated over $100,000 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Here is a recent message that we sent to some of our supporters:
On behalf of the Board of the Faith - Love - Hope - Win Foundation, we would like to personally thank you for your participation and support of the 2008 FLHW golf tournament.
This year's event was a great success; a success that would not have been realized without your generosity. We were blessed with a beautiful day, a full field of golfers, and an exceptional group of volunteers.
The result of this year's event is a $32,000 donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF). This donation will be doubled through a matching program at PCF. Furthermore, these funds will be dedicated to support research for improved treatments and a cure for advanced prostate cancer.
It is through your participation, coupled with the support of all of our sponsors, participants, and volunteers that we have, in just four short years, cumulatively donated over $100,000 to PCF for advanced prostate cancer research.
The research that our donation supports is what gives us hope that a cure will be discovered in our lifetime. Thank you for sharing in our hope.
Mark your calendar now for the 2009 FLHW Tournament which is scheduled for Friday, September 25th at Ironhorse Golf Course. We look forward to seeing you there!
I extend this message of thanks to all who have supported our mission through the years!
2008 was our most successful year so far:
