Letter From Morgan

Breast cancer has been a part of my life since I was 11 years old. That's when my parents sat the three of us down at the kitchen table--my sister was three years younger than me and my brother five years younger--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. A few years ago, I started the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Tournament, which is played every January at St. Andrews CC in Boca Raton, Florida.

With the help of Polo Ralph Lauren, Calloway Golf and the St Andrews community we have raised over $2 million for the Lynn Cancer Institute's Breast Cancer Center at Boca Raton Community Hospital and Sylvester Cancer Center at the University of Miami. Recent efforts with Boca Raton Regional Hospital have resulted in the creation of the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics, informing those with family histories of gene mutations and providing counseling moving forward in treatment. That's what we are all working toward--a cure. We want to end those tearful kitchen-table conversations where Daddy tells three young children that Mommy is sick.

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