ABOUT THE MORGAN PRESSEL FOUNDATION:
The foundation was started in order to further the fight against cancer, particularly breast cancer. Morgan, a star player on the LPGA Tour, wanted to honor the memory of her mother, Kathryn Krickstein Pressel who passed away at an early age of breast cancer. Morgan devoted herself to try and fight this disease. In just four years her efforts with the primary support of the St. Andrews Country Club members and her sponsors have raised over $1.8 million dollars to aid and support patient care and research in the fight against breast cancer. In 2010 the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan, under the direction of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital became a reality. This mobile miracle travels throughout Palm Beach County providing affordable breast exams and health care to those who might not otherwise receive it.
