About RCCS

Cancer. The mere mention of this dreaded disease evokes feelings of unease. Some refuse to allow its name to cross their lips, simply referring to it as "that disease." In a world where crucial medical decisions need to be made, effective treatment plans must be settled, medical bills must be paid and battles with insurance companies are waged at every moment. The overwhelming fear itself knows no bounds.

Since its inception in 1997, RCCS (Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society) has played a critical role, providing hope and relief for cancer patients, support for their families and the means to survive. Without RCCS, thousands of people would stare death in the face with little chance of recovery and survival. RCCS stands by each individual throughout every step of the process, holding their hands along the way to help them fight and win the war against cancer. RCCS literally funds miracles, giving life to cancer patients, offering a ray of hope to families and creating an army of survivors.

The Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society provides an array of services to cancer patients and their families, enabling them to secure the best possible medical care. Notably, among the myriad of services offered by RCCS, is their health insurance premium and medical service subsidies, as well as medical direction, which provides patients with broader access to global oncologists and leaders in the cancer treatment field. Every single dollar that RCCS gives out to patients is approved by its board of volunteers, ensuring tremendous oversight and responsibility.

RCCS is recognized 501 (c) (3) charity organization

About Yaakov Yisroel Topper

Our son Yaakov Yisroel was tragically taken from us a year ago.

While the pain and heartbreak are still with us on a daily basis, we try to focus on the special person that he was. Our son had a caring heart and loved to give and connect with others.

Additionally, he was an avid hockey player, and while he was on the ice, it seemed as if he was reborn and that all his pain and torment miraculously dissipated.

As the shock of his passing still reverberates inside each of us, we have tried to find a way to perpetuate Yaakov Yisroel's legacy and show the world the beauty of who he truly was. We wanted to connect people to the special soul that he possessed and experience the great person that we all cared for and loved.

We could think of no better way to honor our son's life than to dedicate this tournament in his memory. An organization with a wonderful heart, helping people through hockey, this event is the true embodiment of Yaakov Yisroel.
