Mike’s Foundation continues fight against cancer

Staunton’s Michael L. Favre was diagnosed with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer April 21, 2013.

He fought a hard battle for seven months, but succumbed to the disease on Nov. 29, 2013.

His family has continued a tradition every year to honor Favre and raise money to help support local community members experiencing the financial burden caused by unforseen medical costs.

Mike’s Foundation has teamed up with Fight the Fight to host a memorial golf tournament every May, the Michael L. Favre Memorial Golf Tournament.

Mike’s tournament has raised almost $50,000 from the last four tournaments.

The family thanks those who have been generous in donating to the cause, and those hole sponsors, golfers, volunteers and employees at Timber Lakes Golf Course and All Steel Products.
