Dream Discover Cure Golf Tournament

Your unwavering support of Dream Discover Cure has made a difference!

The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) cancelled the 2020 Dream Discover Cure (DDC) golf tournament in Hackensack New Jersey, scheduled on June 22 in order to prioritize the health and safety of our friends, donors, staff and volunteers.

Here at PCRF, we continue to keep focused on our ultimate mission, to identify and fund leading edge researchers that promises the best hope for a cure of childhood cancer.

We called for your immediate help and you answered with overwhelming and inspiring support. THANK YOU!

Teri and Robert Burke, our Dream Big honorees, issued a generous fundraising challenge in the form of a limited time matching grant. They offered to match the first $10,000 raised by this group of DDC supporters through June 22nd, 2020. You all went above and beyond and met their challenge. We are incredibly grateful for your unwavering support!

“Teri and Bob Burke have agreed to match the first $10,000 raised in lieu of having the 2020 DDC Golf Event and their receiving the 2020 DDC/PCRF Golf Dream Big Award due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They have requested that all the proceeds of this fundraising program both continue to support the ongoing research program at the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Laboratory (PCRFL) at New York Medical College (NYMC) and more importantly to help those vulnerable people severely affected by this horrific Covid-19 virus by also supporting the current pioneering research of Dr. Cairo of investigating the development, production, safety and efficacy of Covid-19 viral specific Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTLs) to hopefully control and eradicate this lethal viral infection. This latter research is a direct extension of currently PCRF supported research in similar viral diseases with CMV, EBV, Adeno and BK viral specific CTLs that is ongoing at NYMC.” Dr. Cairo.

We do not have to tell you how meaningful this challenge has been to us during this time of economic uncertainty. Economic resources are shifting almost daily and your benefaction is more important than ever to ensure that the research momentum we’ve achieved in the past is not interrupted.

We’re so grateful for your unwavering commitment to finding a cure for childhood cancer. Your vital support enables PCRF to continue funding the most promising pediatric cancer research, even while COVID-19 disrupts our daily lives.

Thank you for being a force for good during this critical time. And thank you for showing us our value to you by giving generously.



As our dedicated staff continues its critical work championing leading edge research that promises the best hope for a cure for childhood cancer, we have the deep conviction that, together, we will emerge from the coronavirus crisis ever stronger.
