Dear Friends and Family,
I will become a Bar Mitzvah on April 8th and I would like to invite all of you to help me reach my goal of raising as money much as possible for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, or BCRF. My mitzvah project will be to raise money for this charity by collecting donations via EPSN’s 2017 March Madness Basketball Tournament and Brady’s Brackets 4 Breasts.
As most of you know, my mom was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in June of 2015. After seeing what my mother endured over the next 14 months, including multiple surgeries, 16 rounds of chemotherapy and 25 rounds of radiation, I was inspired to try to raise money to put a stop to this terrible disease that has affected so many others. BCRF’s motto is “Prevention and a cure in our lifetime” and now that is my motto today.
By donating to this non-profit foundation, together we will get further on the path towards curing this dreadful disease. Each day they have researchers putting forth their greatest efforts in order to find new discoveries and create new ways to address all symptoms of breast cancer. This organization has invested 10,876,960 hours of research since 1993, to find a “prevention and a cure in our lifetime”. To find out more information on where my proceeds are going, visit . According to the most recent research, about 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer. Together, we can raise more funds to increase research and find a cure.
To raise money for BCRF, I will be hosting an online NCAA March Madness basketball tournament that runs from . A $10 donation per bracket will be required. You can create as many brackets as you would like. All donations must be in and brackets must be entered prior to first game on March 14th. I will personally be donating a $100 Visa gift card to give to the winner of the bracket tournament. Please feel free to donate any additional funds, or just donate any amount if you prefer not to enter a bracket. Once your donation has been sent to: I will send you a follow-up email asking you how many brackets you would like to enter based on your donation amount. I will also send you the password to enter our ESPN Tournament Challenge under the group name ‘Brackets 4 Breasts’.
If you have any questions, you can email me at or text me at 301-250-8269.
Thank you so much!
