2018 Roar For a Cure Golf Classic
Max Plotkin was diagnosed with a rare form of B-Cell Lymphoma, on the day before his 4th birthday. The cancer was rare and originated in his right elbow which metastasized to his left knee. It was stage 4. Luckily, today Max is 14-years-old and is considered to be a 10-year cancer survivor. After experiencing the reality of childhood cancer, the lack of funding for research, and financial issues that impact families as a result of a child’s diagnosis, the Plotkins' created The Max Cure Fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2007 to seed the start of an immuno-oncology laboratory.
Shortly after, MCF was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charity. MCF has expanded its research mission and funding, and to-date has granted over $1.5 million dollars for childhood cancer research. Since November 2011, MCF has provided assistance to over 150 low-income, military and first responder families at countless hospitals and clinics across the United States, with a strong presence in New Jersey and New York. Since that time, MCF has also provided over $575,000 in direct financial support to these families along with giving $79,000 in grants to sustain psychosocial programs and services in hospitals and clinics.
