99-Year-Old Golfs 99 Holes for Cancer Research
What started as a challenge to golf 90 holes on his 90th birthday has turned into a spectacle of strength for California resident Cy Breen and a windfall for the Jody Klein Breast Cancer Fund, which has received $125,000 from the past decade of Breen’s birthdays spent on the green. "You have to age, but you don't have to get old, Cy is the epitome of that," said friend and occasional caddy Cherie Gruenfeld. Breen, whose stepdaughter lost her battle with breast cancer in 2005, realizes that his struggle for par doesn't compare with that of those who suffer from the disease. "Life is a gift, and I have to make the most of it," said Breen of his mindset. "I feel that if I am raising money and helping the research, I am accomplishing something."
