November 19, 2013

Dedicated to Michael Tepsic and his fight with Small-Cell Lung Cancer

During National Lung Cancer Awareness month, Lung Cancer Foundation of America is proud to welcome this very active Mother/Daughters team to the LCFA family:

On Saturday, November 9th, Michael’s three daughters, Ali 14, Brittany 16 and Cassie 21 hosted an unbelievably successful Polish Off Lung Cancer Fundraiser at the Delray Beach Green Market. This was their first fundraiser in support of Lung Cancer.

The girls followed their amazing first event up with another Polish Off Lung Cancer Fundaiser on Sunday, November 17th at the Royal Palm Beach Green Market from 9am -1pm. The plan is to make these annual events dedicated to their father and the search for a cure.

Please support these loving and dedicated LCFA volunteers. Make a donation to their fundraiser at: https://lcfamerica.myetap.org/fundraiser/FloridaPolishOff/

4th Annual Kingfisher Open Memorial Volleyball Tournament

August 30, 2013


The 4 Lady winners – 2012 Kingfisher Tournament

In 2010, friends of Clark Fisher started the Clark E. Fisher Memorial and the 1st Annual Kingfisher Open Memorial Volleyball Tournament. Since then they’ve raised over $31,000 to help local cancer patients and support lung cancer research.

Clark  Fisher,  an  athlete  and  a  non-­smoker,  was  diagnosed  with   lung  cancer  in  early  2009.    On  November  12,  2009,  he  lost  his   battle  with  this  disease. 

Continuing in their altruistic tradition, the Friends of Clark E. Fisher hosted their 4th Annual Kingfisher Open Memorial Volleyball Tournament, sponsored by Apple Automotive, on July 27, 2013 at Hoffman Memorial Complex, Vander Ave., York,PA 17403.  Proceeds of the tournament were donated to Lung Cancer Foundation of America and to an Engineering Student Award at Penn State York. 

Michael Pascucci’s Bike to the Bronx Fundraiser

July 25, 2013


 On Saturday, July 20, 2013, Michael Pascucci completed a 74 mile bike ride from Poughkeepsie, NY to The Bronx in honor of his mother Geraldine – affectionately known as Jay to those closest to her. Jay fought her battle with lung cancer as long as her will would allow, but after 2 years, she lost her fight.

Michael chose to undertake this mega-ride to honor his mother and to aid LCFA in funding the transformative science that leads to a cure in the hopes that other families can avoid the devastating heartache that this disease can bring.  Poignantly, his ride ended at the apartment building where his Mom grew up on Crotona Ave. in the Bronx.

Michael is planning to repeat his ride next May.  You can support Michael’s efforts at any time by donating to his fundraiser at: https://lcfamerica.myetap.org/fundraiser/michael_pascucci/
