The Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation (FCSF) has established the Brad & Terri Prechtl Fund, a tribute fund honoring former FCSF Board Chair Bradley Prechtl, MBA, who is also CEO of Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, and his wife, Terri Prechtl, Lead Patient Support Volunteer at the Lakewood Ranch location of Florida Cancer Specialists. The fund was first announced at the annual Party Under the Stars fundraising event, which was held January 2018 and raised over $200,000 for the Foundation.
The fund, which is ongoing, was created to recognize Brad and Terri’s leadership, personal financial support and dedication to the FCS Foundation. Brad was instrumental in helping to launch the Foundation in 2010 and provided leadership as Board Chair, which is a vital component in building capacity of FCSF, as it seeks to provide financial support to qualifying cancer patients for vital living expenses, such as rent or mortgage, car payments and utilities. Terri has been devoted to the Foundation’s Volunteer Program since its inception in 2014, giving of her own time as Lead Patient Support Volunteer in Lakewood Ranch and helping to promote and grow the Volunteer Program through various initiatives.
