What's it all about?

Eric Wolfe was 23 years old, he loved golf, racquetball, photography, his work and his family and friends.  He was a very energetic, creative young man who had a great sense of humor.  And, he was a second year grad student at UW Madison majoring in Graphic Design when he was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. 

The radiation and the chemotherapy treatments were demanding while maintaining his graduate school schedule therefore he had to make the difficult decision to put school on hold.  Eric was later able to work as a graphic designer and free-lance artist – a field he was passionate about. 

Dr. Mehta, at the University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center, was his primary physician for his radiation and chemotherapy treatments.  Eric’s early prognosis was 3-5 years.  We had always hoped that a new and more effective treatment would become available to extend his life.  Progress was made, but not fast enough. While Dr. Mehta’s clinical trials made it possible for Eric to survive almost 5 years, Eric died in October 1996 at the age of 28. 

Our friends suggested that we do something special that would help continue the medical advancements and at the same time keep Eric’s memory alive.  This is how Golf Fore Wolfe & A Cure (GFW) began.  We have devoted the past eight years to raising money so brain tumor patients will have a better chance to extend their life.  Eric received his treatment at the UW Comprehensive Cancer Center and therefore we have designated this great clinical and research facility as the recipient of our efforts.

There are two major goals with this charitable event:

- To raise money for brain cancer research in the form of the “Eric Wolfe Brain Tumor Professorship”.  It takes $500,000 to start the professorship.

- To keep Eric’s memory alive through a one day event of golf, telling stories and having fun with friends and family. 

We hope you will share our passion to raise money for Brain Cancer Research.  We would like to make a difference and increase the number of survivors.  Please send contributions to:

            Golf Fore Wolfe & A Cure
            
 W134 N6625 Lilly Creek Drive
               Menomonee Falls, WI  53051

Thank you for your support and for keeping Eric’s memory alive!

Sponsorship Opportunities:

It does not seem possible but it will be our 12th Annual event for Brain Cancer Research and Education!

We have been fortunate the past eleven years to have so many corporations and individuals support our charitable event.  With all the funds raised, we were able to establish the Eric Wolfe Brain Tumor Professorship in December 2007.  Click here for the Summary Report for the Eric Wolfe Professorship.  These funds are being used for brain tumor research by Dr. Mehta in the Human Oncology Department at the UW Paul Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center in Madison, Wisconsin.  We hope Dr. Mehta's research results will provide longer, better quality life for those who are suffering from this terrible disease.

Once again we are seeking your contributions and support for this worthy cause.  You can help us accomplish this mission with your generous support.
