About the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund:
The Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fun at Frederick Memorial Hospital was established
in 1999 by Jeff and Patty Hurwitz, after Patty’s diagnosis of breast
cancer. Believing that early diagnosis was the key to Patty’s successful
outcome, the goal of the fund has been to provide the most innovative
options n early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
Over the past decade, more than $1.4 million dollars has been provided
through community support for the fund and its events.
