The Michael Petrone Foundation was started in 1999 by members of Bishop Kenrick High School’s Class of 1976 in honor of Petrone, a classmate who died a year earlier while undergoing a heart and kidney transplant. The foundation was formed to support charities that reflected the four most important things to Mike … family, friends, children and his home town of Norristown. Since 1999 members of the Petrone Foundation have worked to honor the memory of their dear friend by helping those in need.
On September 8th, the 20th annual MPF Golf Outing
will be held at Jeffersonville Golf Club in support of
Emil Boures, Bishop Kenrick High School Class of 1978.
After months of chronic fatigue and medical testing,
Emil was diagnosed with myelofibrosis,
one of a rare group of diseases that affect the bone marrow and blood.
After many blood transfusions and a confirmation that the disease was progressing, a bone marrow transplant was recommended by Emil’s oncologist. With his brother Joe (BKHS Class of “79) as his donor, Emil entered Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center on March 23, 2018 for a bone marrow transplant.
After 35 days Emil was released to continue his recovery under the loving & tender care of his wife, Michelle, at a HEADstrong Foundation home in the Philadelphia suburbs, hours away from their home & children in Pittsburgh.
Emil's recovery will take months with constant monitoring from his team of doctors both at Penn and in Pittsburgh. The goal is to get to a full
recovery and get Emil back his quality of life.
We hope that many friends of Emil and the Boures family, and supporters of the MPF will come out on September 8th to support Emil as he continues his fight.
Here are details.
