The ninth annual golf tournament to support the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research will be held on Friday, July 13th, 2018 at the Diamond Hawk Golf Course. Cancer is an indiscriminate disease that will affect the majority of the population in some manner, so please join us to help make a difference in the battle. This event benefits the Spielman Fund in that 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the fund to be used for cancer research. The administrative cost of this event is completely absorbed by Ohio State University, meaning ALL proceeds go directly to cancer research! With your help, we hope to raise over $10,000 to support cancer research through the Spielman Fund this year!
When I reflect on the last eight years, I am always reminded of those that no longer can attend our event because they lost the battle. A good friend of mine, Tim, was diagnosed one month after attending our event. Tim was the first person to sign up eight years ago, bringing multiple golfers to support our cause every year. As soon as I received word, I reached out to Tim. His spirits were high and very optimistic. The type of cancer Tim was diagnosed with is not very beatable. His optimism gave me hope and encouragement that he could beat it. As the first couple months had passed, it was clear that the cancer was winning. Tim was so full of life and he wanted so badly to see his son grow up, but reality started to sink in. His strength was failing; you could see in his eyes that he knew his fate. He did not want people visiting him because he wanted them to remember him as he used to be and not what the disease was doing to him.
We had a picture of Tim at our event the following year. The number of people that had shared their memories, or as Tim would say it “Suds”, was amazing. Most of us can relate to knowing someone like Tim. He was taken too young, leaving behind a young son without a father. Stories like Tims is another reason why Cancer Research is important. We need to make a difference. To all of the supporters, volunteers, and businesses that have already donated to the cause, I want to say THANK YOU!!
