Sunday on the Green is an annual blood cancer research benefit event. The day begins with an 18-hole golf tournament, with on-course activities for golfers. After the tournament, golfers and non-golfers are invited to join family, friends and other supporters on the patio at Ancil Hoffman Golf Course's Main Event venue for the Afternoon Party. The festivities include food, beverages, live music, visits with the event honorees, raffles, silent and online auctions, and more!!
Event Beneficiary: Proceeds from the event fund the blood cancer research programs of Dr. Joseph Tuscano. Dr. Tuscano is the interim director of the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Transplantation team. His areas of specialty include the treatment of leukemia and lymphoma. He and his research team have a track record of hunting for novel antibody and other immune-based therapies to treat lymphoma and leukemia, many of which can be used for other blood cancers such as multiple myeloma, lung and colon cancer. The team is driven by an intense passion and unbridled commitment to developing less toxic and more effective treatments that utilize the patient’s own immune system.
Our 2023 Honoree: Bradley Buchanan
This year's patient honoree is Bradley Buchanan, a two-time cancer patient who is living with chronic Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GvHD), a result of a stem cell transplant in 2016 to treat his T-cell lymphoma. From his initial diagnosis in 2015, Brad’s journey with cancer has been complicated by a number of unique, rare and difficult-to-diagnose symptoms, which led his case to be labeled a ‘zebra’: it's not like all the other horses by his doctors.
Brad was referred to Dr. Tuscano at UCDMC in 2015, and has been under his care and counseling since then. Like many of us who have come to know Dr. Tuscano, Brad now calls the doctor his friend. During his multiple years of treatment and onset of many medical challenges, Brad turned to one of his passions – writing and reciting poetry – as an outlet for his emotions, fears, and experiences. His personal poetry was published as The Scars Aligned; A Cancer Narrative, and he has also published a manuscript called Living with GvHD.
We look forward to hearing Brad share more of his story at the Sunday on the Green event on May 7.
The event is sponsored by the Better Life Foundation, in association with James Blake Wines. Better Life Foundation, CA is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the lives of blood cancer patients. James Blake Wines produces hand-crafted, small batch, artisan wines in the greater Sacramento region.
