Last September Tammy and I lost a good friend and client, Cathy Garry, to cancer. Cathy’s first fight was with breast cancer. After she successfully battled this terrible disease she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. All of us who knew Cathy were amazed at her spirit. Whenever we got together with Cathy and Jim the conversation was never about her battle with cancer. She only wanted to know how our family was doing. She certainly was an inspiration to us and a truly kind and loving person.
Cathy’s Kids Foundation is a registered non-profit foundation that was created by her three children and their spouses to aid families fighting the same battle with cancer as their family fought. I cannot think of a better way her children could have kept her spirit alive.

On Monday August 2, 2010 the Foundation will hold the first Cathy Garry Memorial Golf Tournament. All proceeds raised at this event will help send a child who is fighting cancer and his/her family to Walt Disney World. I urge you to support this event in any way possible. If you like golf, sign up a foursome. If you are not a golfer then you can still make a donation
All of us here at Spencer Insurance Agency want to help out in this great cause. In addition to being a sponsor for the golf outing, Spencer Insurance will donate $5 for every referral we receive from you from March 1, 2010 until August 2, 2010. There is no limit to the number of referrals you send our way. Please spread the word to your friends and family.
In addition if you can donate even a small amount we would be thrilled. You can make individual donations through their website at http://golfforcathy.webs.com/individualdonations.htm.
I would like to thank you in advance for helping Cathy’s Kids Foundation send a child and their family to Walt Disney World. I know all of us have been affected by this terrible disease and hope for a cure in the near future.
