MORGAN'S STORY

Breast cancer has been a part of my life since I was 11 years old. That's when my parents sat my sister (8), my brother (6) and me down at the kitchen table and Dad told us our mother was sick. They were trying to explain to three little kids that their mother has a life-threatening illness, and we just didn't understand. My mom, Kathy Krickstein Pressel, was 39 that day. Four years later, breast cancer took her from us.

Even before I became a professional golfer, I knew I wanted to help raise money for research and early detection. Seventeen years ago I started the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Tournament, which is played every January at St. Andrews CC in Boca Raton, Florida. Our efforts continue to grow, and now we host three major fundraising events - at St. Andrews CC, Banyan GC and Woodmont CC.

With the help of our incredible donors, we have raised over $12.7 million to fight breast cancer, in South Florida and beyond. We work with Boca Raton Regional Hospital on two major

projects, The Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics and The Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, which put an emphasis on early detection, accessibility, community outreach and research. In the Washington, DC metro area, we have created a nurse navigator role with Medstar Health to provide the underserved community a helping hand to navigating the complex medical system and increase the number of women receiving their annual mammograms through greater access.

Breast cancer has touched us all in some way, and with your help we can continue to fight this dreadful disease and save lives. If you are interested in supporting our efforts, please click the donate button or contact us for more information.

We can do this. We must do this. We will do this.
