Joseph McGovern Memorial Foundation for Prostate Cancer Research
Into the Wild for a Cure
Thank you for visiting my page. In memory of my grandfather, I have teamed up with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Hospital to raise money for prostate cancer research. Currently 1 in 6 men in America are affected by prostate cancer, and men are actually 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than a woman is to be diagnosed with breast cancer. In memory of my grandfather (Joseph McGovern) who succumbed to prostate cancer, I will be spending my 2 week holiday on a 250 mile hike through a portion of the North Country/Fingerlakes Trail in western New York State from August 19-29th to raise money for this noble cause. All contributions are 100% tax deductible through Memorial Sloan Kettering, and they will send you a tax form directly through the mail. All donations can be made directly via this web link or through the mail. Any checks should be made out to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and can be mailed to Laura Lo Russo in care of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, 633 Third Avenue, 28th Floor, NY NY 10017. If you do choose to mail a check, please be sure to reference the Joseph McGovern Memorial Foundation on the check so that your contribution can be allocated correctly. Myself and my family truly thank you for your generous donation.
