Benefitting Breast Cancer Research and Survivor Care
Almost every one of us has a loved one, dear friend, or valued colleague whose life has been forever changed by this insidious disease. It is the most common cancer in women worldwide.
This year, a breast cancer will be newly diagnosed every 2.3 minutes and a woman will die every 13.3 minutes.
One in eight women in The United States will receive a diagnosis of breast cancer in their lifetime.
To raise funds through different platforms such as golf tournaments or other events to benefit breast cancer research for the purpose of finding a cure, cancer prevention, survivor care, support and treatment. As this is an all-volunteer organization. Since 2010, 98% of funds raised have been donated locally to other breast cancer organizations specifically involved with breast cancer research and survivor care, which are also exempt under section 501c3.

Barbara Ann Mancuso, was born April 10, 1941 in Queens, NY. She lost her battle with melanoma on November 13, 2012. Barb retired from the New York Times as the Director of Rights and Permissions and shortly there after moved to the Park City, Utah, where she lived with her partner, Liz Jones.
Barb was an avid golfer and a terrific supporter of the Park City Women's Golf Association, serving as president of the league. She was vice chair of the Playing for Life Foundation and spent many years fund raising on behalf of Huntsman Cancer Institute and Image Reborn.
Her passing really was too soon. We will deeply miss Barb. She had a firecracker personality, tremendous wit, and was loved by so many. Her laughter was infectious. She will be in our hearts forever.
