see what some of the people we help have to say

We will host various fundraising events that will raise substantial funds, increasing each year, to be used two fold. Proceeds designated exclusively to cancer research will aide in funding preliminary trials that will substantiate the need for further research in those areas. The remainder of the proceeds raised each year will be disbursed to local families, alleviating the financial burdens to which expensive treatments may contribute. Swing Fore Hope will significantly impact the lives of its recipients and assist in changing the world of cancer as we know it.

Dear Brett and Julie,
Thank you for all you do for us! We are extremely grateful for your time and many talents. You are an amazing team!
Your generous support is greatly appreciated and makes a tremendous impact in our patients’ lives and those who love them. 
My sincere thanks!
Jana (Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center)

“The journey that we’ve been on the past year that included many of you, in some fashion, has been surreal, to say the least. It has taught us to be humble. It has taught us to reach out. It has taught us to do more. With your help, both direct and indirect we see light at the end of the tunnel. It’s as if each person that has helped us has a little flashlight but when all put together it’s a beacon of hope.

Thank you for your role in our journey…”


Dear Julie and Brett, 
Thank you for your gift to Siteman Cancer Center of the proceeds from the 2012 Swing Fore Hope golf tournament. Your continued support does make a difference to our physician researchers and the work they do. We appreciate your support. On behalf of our patients, researchers and physicians, thank you for all you do – and you do it so well.
Warmest regards,

“I am the father of DJ who passed away on October 25, 2014. As I am sure you are aware, through the generosity of yourself and your foundation, earlier this month all of the 2015 mortgage payments on the home in which DJ’s wife and children reside were paid. Words cannot express the appreciation all of DJ’s family feels for this kindness. The mission of your foundation is truly noble and gives some peace and hope to those who have been affected by this terrible disease. Thank you for this unexpected assistance that you and your foundation has provided.

Brett & Julie,

Dear Julie and Brett,

“You are a family, a family of healers; a band of angels. Your contributions to this incredible organization not only extend life, but give meaning and restore quality to those of us whose lives have been roughed up by this terrible disease. I am proof that you make a difference.”

“A humble thank you to Julie Gilliland and her family. Julie embodies everything I know about angels and I am grateful for her dedication to making a difference in the battle against cancer.”

God bless you.


Dear Julie and Brett, 
I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for Mike and Sarah. It is because of you and your generosity that they were able to stay in their apartment for so long. It is because of you that they were able to focus on Mike and taking care of him rather than paying bills. Your generosity has made their marriage possible. You are and will forever be in our hearts and extremely important members of team “Refuse To Lose”.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
