We had the opportunity to support our own Jack Brown’s daughter’s legacy in the Em for Emily Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
Emily was diagnosed with Peritoneal Mesothelioma at the age of 25, and unfortunately lost her life from the extremely rare cancer in January 2017. The purpose for the Em for Emily is to honor Emily’s life and courageous fight against cancer through remembrance, fellowship & fun, and raising money, awareness, and improving the quality of life for those fighting cancer.
The purpose of the Em for Emily is to host events raising money and awareness supporting the following 2021 beneficiaries:
- Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF): The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation is the only non-profit explicitly dedicated to the eradication of Mesothelioma. MARF was instrumental in providing assistance through consultations and advice, connecting us with clinical trials, providing travel grants to attend the trials, and providing a means for others with this extremely rare disease to connect. When we didn’t know what to do next, MARF was there for us. (www.curemeso.org)
- Let There Be Mom: Let There Be Mom is a Greenville, SC based non-profit dedicated to serving local Mom’s and Dad’s battling life threatening illnesses by capturing hopes, dreams, and life stories in tangible ways to ensure that young children will always have a way to know them. Emily loved being a mom and Let There Be Mom is a special cause that captures what kept her fighting. (www.lettherebemom.org)
- Make a Wish Foundation
