Thank You to the Czarnecki Family & Friends

The rainy forecast for October 5 did not deter the 2015 Joey C Cup Golf Tournament from staying the course. Melissa Czarnecki & Matthew Pollack started the Joey C Cup 13 years ago, in memory of Melissa’s brother, Joe Czarnecki. Melissa’s sister, Karen, lost her fight with breast cancer in February of 2006. On June 24, 2011, Joanne, Melissa’s mother, lost her battle with cancer. The Joey C Cup has become an inspiring tradition for the Czarnecki family and their supporters. All proceeds from the tournament are donated to Life with Cancer.


To date, this tournament has raised almost $150,000; an amazing accomplishment for the Joey C Foundation and Life with Cancer! Pictured below are Melissa Czarnecki and Life with Cancer Director, Sage Bolte, PhD (as you can see, it turned out to be a beautiful day — in so many ways). All of us at Life with Cancer would like to send a heart-felt “Thank You” to the Czarnecki family for all they do to support our cancer community.
