Rod Carew Children’s Golf Classic

2020 FORMAT –
JOIN US WITH A GIFT OF HOPE

Here at the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF), we are keeping focused on our ultimate mission of curing childhood cancer. We remain deeply committed to pushing pediatric cancer research forward because it is just as essential today as it was before COVID-19. To prioritize the health and safety of you and your family, we’ve decided to postpone our 25th Anniversary Rod Carew Golf Classic to 2021.

While these are unusual times, I want to personally thank you for helping to keep your eye on the ball for pediatric cancer research. Funding research is even more vital today for our already immune compromised kids. I thank you for your past support of our fun day of golf, and hope you will consider supporting us with a donation this year until we can all safely be together again in 2021.” – Rod Carew

Please consider honoring your previous year’s gift to this special tournament by making a 100% tax-deductible donation to ensure PCRF can sustain our level of funding for research. Your support of PCRF means the most to the 46 kids being diagnosed with cancer every day. Their cancer is not stopping in the face of this novel virus — and we hope your support of our work won’t either.

DONATE TODAY

DONATION OF HOPE

Michelle Carew Spirit Award

MICHELLE CAREW SPIRIT AWARD

Our 25th anniversary Michelle Carew Spirit Award recipient is Mike and Joanna Irwin. On January 21, 2019, Mike and Joanna heard the most devastating news parents can hear – Will, their 3-month-old firstborn, had cancer. To date, the cancer is undiagnosed and has stumped the top doctors in the field of pediatric cancer. Will endured 5 months of chemotherapy and numerous surgeries–including several brain surgeries. In the final week of his life, he even underwent immunotherapy. Through his battle, Will was a dream of a child. He cuddled his mom and sang with his dad. He read books with his grandparents and brought so much joy and love to his aunts and uncles. God the Father brought Will home to heaven on May 31, 2019, one day before his 8th month birthday.

“We grieve our baby boy every day, and it brings us hope to raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. No child should suffer from cancer,” said his mother, Joanna.

Will spent over half his short life battling nasty tumors and living at CHOC. Throughout Will’s battle, he remained to be the most angelic and happy little boy. Even when in pain, he loved to snuggle his family. Will’s perseverance throughout his battle with cancer, motivates “Team Will Strong” to riase funds and awareness for research.

In light of the devastation the Irwin Family has endured through their loss, they are true advocates for PCRF. Thanks to individuals like Mike and Joanna, our community of supporters grows larger and larger – which translates to more awareness and funds that will be directed towards leading edge research with the best hope for a cure.

Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors!
