5th Annual Jean Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament Raises Over $2,000 for Foley Cancer Center

Golfers teed up at the 5th Annual Jean Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament to raise over $2,000 in support of patient care at the Foley Cancer Center. The tournament was hosted in September at the Country Meadow Golf Club in Fort Ann, New York and has raised over $6,000 since it began.

“We are proud to have organized this tournament in memory of our beloved Aunt Jean,” says Tammy Casey, one of a committee of family and friends who organized the tournament. “We are honored to extend the proceeds to patient care at the Foley Cancer Center because of the great care and compassion Jean received by the cancer care team. This tournament was a tribute to the affection she felt for all those who cared for her. We look forward to hosting the event again next year.”

“We are grateful to be designated as the beneficiary of the tournament’s proceeds,” said Allan Eisemann, MD, Medical Director of the Foley Cancer Center. “This event supports our efforts to provide quality care and comfort to patients and their families facing the challenges of cancer.”

About the Foley Cancer Center

Comprehensive, compassionate, coordinated patient care services- paired with service excellence standards and commitment to quality – are the cornerstones of care at the Foley Cancer Center. Innovation, technology, and advance diagnostics complete the picture of integrative cancer care that respects the dignity and individuality of patients and families living with a cancer diagnosis.

Now in its’ 25th year, the Foley Cancer Center remains steadfast in its commitment to patients, and as a result, has been continuously accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC) since 1984.

The Accreditation Program, a component of the CoC, sets quality of care standards for cancer programs and reviews each program to ensure they conform to those standards. Approval by the CoC is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. To maintain the certification, facilities with CoC-accredited cancer programs must undergo an on-site review every three years.
