About the EJF Foundation
Since 2009, the Ed Friedman Golf Classic and Hilton Head Raffle together have raised over $500,000, which allowed us to establish and make generous grants to the Ed Friedman Patient Assistance Fund at the Lapidus Cancer Institute at Sinai Hospital, and to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. For the past ten years we have been the presenting sponsor of PanCan’s Maryland Purple Stride fundraising event.
About Ed Friedman
EVERYBODY who knew Ed Friedman loved him and loved to be around him. In the prime of his life, he was a partner in the law firm Weinstock, Friedman & Friedman, P.A, a devoted husband to Helen, and proud father of Lanie and Jeremy. The devastating diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer came in 2006 when Ed was only 55 years old. For just over two years he fought with incredible courage and optimism. He died in July 2008.
Our goals are:
•To raise awareness and funds to find a cure for pancreatic cancer by supporting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
•To support patient care at the Lapidus Cancer Institute at Sinai Hospital where Ed received his treatment
•To honor Ed Friedman and have fun while keeping his memory alive
