Manhattan Ridge Advisors is honored to be the main sponsor of The Brooke Healey Foundation’s Golf Outing fundraiser on August 25, 2014.
The foundation was created in honor of five-year-old Brooke Healey who was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) in January 2013 at age 4. DIPG is a very aggressive tumor in the middle of the brain stem. Its location makes it impossible to successfully operate and it is unfortunately very resistant to treatment. Fewer than 10% of diagnosed children live longer than 18 months after diagnosis.
Brooke passed away on September 9, 2013 after an eight-month battle with DIPG. Her brief life was a light in the world of those who met her. In fact, she continued to bring smiles to family, friends and supporters throughout her illness. The Brooke Healey Foundation was founded to raise awareness, fund research for and help families coping with pediatric cancer, especially brain tumors.
Pediatric brain tumors have a survival rate of less than 20%. Research in DIPG and other pediatric cancer is greatly underfunded. Families facing DIPG have few medical and social support resources. “Not enough money” should never be an answer to a sick child and their family in search of treatment. “Not enough funding” should never be an answer to those in search of a cure.
The Brooke Healey Foundation provide funding to find a cure for DIPG. Until a cure is found, the foundation aims to make life a little easier for families coping with this disease.

Family and Community
Few things in life are as important as family and community. Manhattan Ridge Advisors is proud to sponsor the Brooke Healey Foundation Golf Outing. Our efforts and support lend themselves to raising funds to help find a cure for pediatric cancer and to provide a community of loving support for the families affected by this dreadful disease.
Please join us August 25, 2014 to help support this worthwhile cause. A day of sun, fun, good food and golf is planned for each person who can join us in celebrating the life of Brooke Healey. Make an effort to help others who suffer from the same life circumstances of this amazing little girl and the Healey family.
