A Worthy Cause; Teens Living with Cancer (TLC)

Dr. Helgemo recently stumbled upon information about Duel in the Pool – Eggers vs. Armstrong, which you may have heard about in the news. Hawaii Ironman Triathlete, Mary Eggers, challenged Lance Armstrong to a charitable swimming competition with proceeds benefiting Teens Living with Cancer and Livestrong.

The event raised over $50,000, and Dr. Helgemo was happy to contribute to the worthy cause on behalf of Florida Hand Center. We wanted to take a moment share the information with visitors to our website in case, they too, would like to contribute.

You can find more information about the event here or learn more about future fundraising opportunities for Teens Living with Cancer here. No teenager or child should have to deal with such a serious illness at such a young age.
