Fish For A Cure 2019

Capt. John and his 7 Breast Friends

We are getting ready to embark on the most meaningful, and important, fishing trip of our lives...and it’s personal. With your help, it will save and enhance the lives of thousands of others.

It's easy for us to hurry through our busy days, taking our good health for granted. But so many of our family, friends, and neighbors don't have that luxury, because they have had to hear those 3 dreaded words - you have cancer.

Fortunately, there is an incredible support resource right in our backyard that makes those words so much easier to survive and manage - Anne Arundel Medical Center’s (AAMC) Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute.

For more than a decade, the Fish For A Cure Tournament and Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge has provided transformational support of Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute. Every dollar raised will directly impact cancer patients and their families through a comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Program at AAMC. One key feature of the program is “Nurse Navigators” – the “go to” people for cancer patients to answer questions and help them navigate the complex and, sometimes dizzying, array of doctor appointments, tests, and procedures involved in cancer treatment.

On November 2nd, Capt. John and his all women crew will take to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay in their commitment to support cancer care in our community…and it’s personal. Not one, but TWO are recent breast cancer SURVIVORS and one serves as a Physician’s Assistant in the Breast Center, who helped them and thousands of others through their cancer journey.
In short - if you have cancer, you want AAMC on your team. And we need you on ours - we will catch the fish if you will write the check. Our boat, the Capt. John and His 7 Breast Friends, has set a fundraising goal of $50,000, and we would like to crush that...and with your help, we will. Your donation is tax deductible.

Tight Lines,

Beth, Ann, Susan, Carolyn, Molly, Mary Ellen, Frances, John
