Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation


Feelings sometimes gather unconsciously… where they come from can’t be answered.

Sometimes we neglect trying to understand these emotions, fearing self-examination.

Yet, imagine, if each deep sentiment could be carefully studied… Imagine if we would allow each warmth of feeling we experience to leave an impression on our lives, how profoundly we could stir our hearts and souls.

4th Annual

Kevin Regan Memorial

Golf Outing

The 4th Annual Kevin Regan Memorial Golf Outing benefitting the Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation will take place on Monday, July 16, 2024 at the North Hempstead Country Club.

Kevin, who was raised in Manhasset, was a resident of Port Washington for 13 years prior to his death on February 21st 2021. Kevin would have turned 49 on July 10.

This event is being held to honor the life of a man who meant so much to so many and who was taken from us way too soon. The LSLF is a charity that was near and dear to our beloved Kevin and his family.  The wonderful people behind LSLF took a vested interest in Kevin’s cancer battle.

They were always available to us as we navigated his misdiagnosis and eventual diagnosis of Myeloid Sarcoma, a rare subset of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  That was a particularly tough time for us but it was made infinitely better by their understanding and compassion.

Kevin was that guy – the guy everyone gravitated toward.  He had natural charisma, a sharp wit, and a dazzling smile that could certainly light up a room.  We all miss him so dearly but none more than his 2 beautiful children – his Sami girl and his mini-me, Finn.  His loss continues to be felt so deeply by so many but we remain inspired by him to live our lives the way he did – with humor, courage, and always with love in his heart.  I’m certain he would love the idea of people gathering together in his honor to play golf and celebrate his life.  I know he wishes he could join us.

We hope you will join us on July 16 to honor Kevin and support the Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation, a local charity doing a world of good.

Your donation enables our discovery grants.  Within this Newsletter, you will meet LSLF Discovery Grants Recipients (1990 – 2018) who have gained recognition subsequent to their awards. Not all projects become newsworthy, but important within the scope of attaining the end all conquest of these horrid diseases.

By contributing to our foundation, you will be able to ascertain exactly where your money is disbursed, as you will see who has received the grants.

In addition…We are happy to name a grant for anyone who wishes to name a grant for themselves, a company or a friend.  The recipients and their projects will be vetted by our LSLF Medical Advisory Board.  You will be presented a choice of recipients to choose from. 

The recipient will be advised about your contribution. You will be able to be in contact with the recipient.  You know where and with whom your donation is making an impact.

Often the Foundation is called upon to lend an ear, to provide medical referrals and unfortunately to give solace.

The ability to make these much-needed connections means a great deal to those involved with the Foundation as well as those receiving support.
