Kathryn Krickstein Pressel had her time on earth cut short by breast cancer in 2003. The sister of former top 10 tennis pro Aaron Krickstein, her fight continues through daughter Morgan Pressel’s tireless work to raise money that over the years has helped fund the Morgan Pressel Foundation. The Foundation has sponsored a mobile mammogram van, the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, and the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. But here’s also what counts…something less quantifiable by numbers. Morgan is an LPGA star, a Major winner. The players who join her each year for her Morgan & Friends Golf Outing are likewise golf royalty. When they do these events, maybe a woman who follows as a fan but lives thousands of miles away schedules a mammogram appointment. Or maybe a guy like myself who is an LPGA fan texts two women over 40 in my life and makes sure they get their yearly mammogram or under 40 schedules a CBE every couple of years. All women should start doing a monthly self-exam by the age of 20. You see, breast cancer…like any potentially fatal malady…isn’t a women’s issue. It’s a family issue. One person touches so many other lives. One loss leaves an absence in many hearts. So if you’re reading this, maybe Morgan, Gerina Piller, Jessica Korda, Brittany Lincicome, Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel, Cristie Kerr, Lexi Thompson and the legendary Annika Sorenstam will inspire you to make a donation to the Morgan Pressel Foundation. Or maybe you’ll be inspired to contact two loved ones to make sure they are up to date on yearly mammograms. And ask those two to ask two others. Whether it’s the money raised by the annual Morgan & Friends Golf Outing, over 4 million dollars since its inception, or the awareness it has raised, the work Morgan has done is an absolute blessed good.
