Kathryn Krickstein Pressel MammoVan
THE CENTER FOR BREAST CARE

Morgan Pressel learned what it takes to be a champion when she became the youngest player ever to win a major championship in 2007. Today, she is a champion for a cause close to her heart -- breast cancer. “My mother, Kathy Krickstein Pressel, passed away when I was only 15, but I made it my goal as a professional athlete to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer,” Morgan says.

In 2008, Morgan established the Morgan & Friends Fight Breast Cancer Tournament at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton. In its first two years, her event (and proceeds from her Polo/Ralph Lauren Pink Pony shirt) has raised more than $500,000 for Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute and Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute - The Center for Breast Care.

In the tournament's second year, Morgan and the Morgan & Friends directed that their funds be used to benefit everyone in the community. Now, the Kathy Krickstein Pressel MammoVan is a reality. The completely digital, handicapped accessible mobile mammography vehicle is named after Morgan's mother. It will travel throughout Palm Beach county and beyond providing affordable and convenient access to mammography equipment as well as clinical breast exams and breast health education.
