King Fee Classic is a fundraiser which will be providing SickKids Hospital with resources and helping children with Mesothelioma. Kofi “King Fee” Ankoma-Mensa was a basketball player who unfortunately was diagnosed with Mesothelioma and passed away. His wish was to organize a basketball tournament where all funds raised would go towards the research and cure of Mesothelioma. The future successes of “SickKids” rest upon the availability of more funds to provide support services for new advances in diagnosis, treatment, and care. The proceeds from this event will help us fulfill this promise.
