In 1997, my 33-year-old wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I felt so helpless and out of control of the situation, as any husband does when he cannot “fix” what is happening to his wife. At the time, my daughter had just turned three, and the prospect of her not having a mom, and of me having to raise her on my own, were both sobering and frightening. I wanted to do something – anything – to help others in the same situation and give them hope.

One thing I did have, was friends. So in 1998, I put together a group of golfers, and the first “Teed Off at Cancer” golf tournament was held.

This group has grown to include not only friends but business associates and supporters. What started out as a small golf tournament has grown into one of the largest charity events in the city. With the money that we raise, we are proud to support The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, Methodist Children’s Hospital, and University Hospital. As our mission evolved, so did our name. Formerly Teed Off at Cancer, Hope Hits Harder aims to provide immediate hope and comfort to children battling cancer and their families. Cancer hits hard, but hope hits harder.
