Fighting Breast Cancer With Every Great Shot

Posted on October 2nd, 2012 by

A 14-time winner on the LPGA tour, golfer Cristie Kerr possesses a needed intensity on the course—and when talking about her other passion, her breast-cancer research foundation. In 2003, Ms. Kerr founded Birdies for Breast Cancer, inspired by her mother's diagnosis earlier that year…Money raised by Birdies for Breast Cancer has gone to other foundations and research institutions, such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, but its greatest beneficiary is the Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center, part of LibertyHealth's Jersey City Medical Center.
