Founder’s Message

In October of 2013, my mother, Becky Armstrong visited the Dr. to check on what she thought was a kidney stone. After two misdiagnoses, to her surprise, she learned it was not a kidney stone, rather, it was stage four Uterine cancer. The cancer quickly spread and after a short battle with cancer my mother, Becky Armstrong passed away in early 2014.

After her passing, I vowed to honor her memory by giving back to others affected by this horrible disease in whatever way I could. Not knowing exactly what to do or how I could help, I decided to begin with something I am very familiar with and is one of my biggest passions, golf. Specifically, charity golf events. Since my mom’s passing, I have hosted several charity golf events to raise funds for a variety of cancer-related charities.

As with many others, the pandemic had a powerful effect on me, and I began thinking about how I could do even more and make even more of an impact. Which lead me to create Becky’s Way. Becky’s Way is a 501(c)(3), EIN 86-1887249, charity foundation whose sole purpose is to help those affected by cancer. The pandemic reminded me that every day is precious and to live each day the way my mom did. She lived each day to improve the life of someone else and that is 100% what Becky’s Way is all about.
