The Stephen Doughton Jr. Foundation is a private non-profit founded by Stephen and his family in 2008.
In May 2006, Stephen was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). He was treated at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) and is currently in remission. After enduring the horror of being a cancer patient and witnessing young children battling cancer, Stephen and his family decided to start a foundation in 2008. Since then they have raised over $200,000 for leukemia research and patient assistance.
On October 30th Stephen, Kara, Mark and Susan presented a check for $35,000 to the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center. This is the largest donation that the Foundation has donated in our 11 year history. We are very thankful for all of our supporters as we wouldn't be able to donate this amount without their gifts to the Foundation. We look forward to next year's golf tournament fundraiser as it is our goal to continue to give more funds each year.
The Foundation's goal is to raise money for
Leukemia Research and patient support and to increase
awareness of the disease through community involvement.
Through our fundraising efforts, we hope to provide financial
support to further help these doctors and scientists
improve treatment and eventually cure Leukemia
through research being done
at numerous levels.
