    Winthrop-University Hospital recently received a $100,000 donation from The Pat Lyons Foundation after the organization held another successful Lt. Patrick Lyons Golf Classic. The third annual gift benefits the Hospital's Cancer Center for Kids' newly established Long Term Effects Program, an initiative that supports survivors of childhood cancer.

    "The Foundation's generosity will help create this comprehensive survivorship health program, which will focus on the health and life of a person with a history of cancer beyond the diagnosis and treatment phase," said Maria Kavan, Development Specialist for Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids.

    The Pat Lyons Foundation is dedicated to honoring the memory and spirit of Patrick John Lyons, a New York City firefighter, who heroically gave his life on September 11, 2001. Established by Pat's wife, Irene, their son, Patrick Mate Lyons, his family and friends, the organization's mission is to help improve the lives of children.

    The funds were raised during the Foundation's third annual golf outing in September, which attracted more than 450 golfers.

    "This Foundation carries the spirit of Pat Lyons forward in what it does, how it does it and why it does it," explained Irene. "Pat touched many lives and will continue to extend his reach through this Foundation."
