About Have A Ball Foundation
 


The Have a Ball Foundation was founded in 2005 by two-time cancer survivor Bob Hammer.

Bob brought on board his friend, and fellow cancer survivor,
Steven Seaweed and together they have raised over $2.5 Million Dollars for cancer since 2005.

Today, the Have a Ball Foundation benefits 20 cancer organizations each year, has created
and awarded over 10 scholarships to oncology nursing students.

Have a Ball Board Members:

Bob Hammer
Founder/Executive Director

Bob is a two-time testicular cancer survivor. In April 2001 after finishing 26 rounds of
Chemotherapy, he raised enough money to participate the "Ride for the Roses" event
in Austin, TX. While there he was introduced to Lance Armstrong's Oncologist, Dr. Graig Nichols. He had been scheduled to have surgery the following week at Stanford which would have prevented him from ever having children again. Dr. Nichols, a world-famous Oncologist, did not feel he needed the surgery. Long story short, he did not have surgery, and Josh Hammer, who was conceived naturally after Testicular Cancer, was born in 2003. As a tribute and to give back to organizations such as the Livestrong Foundation, who without their help their son would not be here, he and his wife Kim started planning the "Have a Ball" Golf Tournament in late 2003 and launched their first event in 2005.
