When you purchase any item in our Kathryn Collection, Golf4Her is donating the proceeds to the Morgan Pressel Foundation.
We selected this foundation for several reasons, specifically because Madison (Morgan's younger sister) is a Golf4Her Ambassador and we
hope to honor the memory of their mom and the women in our own lives
who have been affected by breast cancer.
The mission of the Morgan Pressel Foundation is to raise funds to fight
cancer, primarily breast cancer, through early diagnosis, genetic
counseling, development of new treatments, and basic research
complimenting all of the above modalities. Monetary grants are made to
Hospitals, Medical Schools, and Research institutions to accomplish the
mission. Morgan, a star player on the
LPGA Tour, wanted to honor the memory of her mother, Kathryn Krickstein
Pressel who passed away at an early age of breast cancer. Morgan
devoted herself to try and fight this disease. In a short period of
time, she has helped to raise over $3.4 million dollars to aid and
support patient care and research in the fight against breast cancer. In
2010 the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, under the direction of
the Boca Raton Regional Hospital became a reality. This mobile miracle
travels throughout Palm Beach County providing affordable breast exams
and health care to those who might not otherwise receive it. In 2013,
the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Lynn Cancer Institute announced the
opening of the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics. The center is
designed to ascertain an individuals risk for developing certain cancers
that have strong hereditary links.
