Hitting the Links with BJALCF

BJALCF Golf TourneyEmily and Miles had the honor of attending the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation’s (BJALCF) 8th Annual Golf Tournament on June 10th.  The beautiful weather in Millbrae, CA made for perfect conditions on the course, and Miles couldn’t have been happier.  He formed a team with his dad, Rich, his uncle, Stan Taylor, and high school friend, Brett Baker.  All of the guys gave an excellent effort, and while they may not have come in first place, they certainly had a lot of fun trying.  Emily spent the afternoon relaxing on the clubhouse patio with Bonnie and met many fellow survivors and friends of the Lung Cancer Foundation.

Emily and Hank SrAfter all golfers were in for the day, the group attended the banquet and silent auction.  The BJALCF had many generous patrons that graciously donated to the cause, and the event was a great success.  Emily even got pulled up by Bonnie to share her story – and exited the stage to a standing ovation.

Emily loved seeing the BJALCF “family” and swapping stories with other survivors only bolstered her ever-growing strength.  Miles and Emily are eternally grateful to Bonnie and everyone at the BJALCF for their endless kindness and tireless work to end lung cancer.  They are already making plans to return next year for the 9th Annual tournament!

Michele, Bonnie, and Emily
