Although this was a difficult decision to make, the health of everyone that so generously attends and supports our golf outings is of our utmost concern.
We hope that you and your family members are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
The Pat Cairo Family Foundation, Inc. was organized in 1995 to help those struggling with Cancer. Since our inception in 1995, The Pat Cairo Family Foundation, Inc. has donated more than $5,000,000.00 to help those struggling with cancer.
Perhaps our Foundation’s greatest achievement came on December 22, 1999 when New York Governor George Pataki signed into law an End of Life Care Bill which ensured quality end of life care for thousands of terminally ill cancer patients. Specifically the law requires insurance companies and HMO’s to pay for treatment of terminally ill patients at acute care specialty hospitals. Since the Bill’s passage, hundreds of cancer patients who otherwise would have been denied coverage for admission and treatment at Calvary have spent their final days being cared for at Calvary. In recognition of the Foundation’s efforts, Calvary Hospital, on March 4, 2000, named the third floor south wing of the hospital “Patricia A. Cairo Hall”. Only once more in its 104th year history has Calvary Hospital so recognized an individual.
