the JEAN & JOAN CANCER FUND
The Jean & Joan Cancer Fund was founded in 1999 in memory of Jean James and Joan Martin who valiantly lost their battles with cancer. Moved by the out-pour of love, support and commitment generously given to these women by their friends and family, The Fund was established to provide assistance to victims of cancer who are in need of unique patient services and equipment for their treatment.
Our only source of funding is the annual Jean & Joan Cancer Fund Golf Tournament, which has raised more than $500,000 for patient services at Beebe Healthcare's Tunnell Cancer Center in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The Tournament, held at Kings Creek Country Club each fall, has grown into a premiere event and local favorite, attracting dozens of golfers, sponsorships, and auction items.
