Palmer Family Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament Foursome
In April of 2012, my wife and I started the Angela and Patrick Palmer Research Fund for Brain Cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in light of her 2011 diagnosis of Stage IV Glioblastoma. Her original prognosis was 6-12 months. She lived for 53 months, passing away this past February. Why? Because, in part, she had access to experimental drugs that are only funded through charity events like the 5th Annual Palmer Family Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament scheduled for September 19th at Blackstone.
The net proceeds from this event will be restricted to the neuro oncology department at Dana-Farber for brain cancer research and human trial implementation of experimental therapies. Obviously, the funds will not affect Angela directly but they will definitely impact the lives of those who are currently suffering from this dreaded disease or those who may be diagnosed in the future.
My family and I greatly appreciate your consideration of participating in this golf tournament. For your convenience, you may sign up directly at the Pro Shop.
