About Our Foundation

Why We Help

The Denise Marie Flaherty Memorial Foundation is a 501c3 foundation that started out as a grassroots effort in 2003 by Brian Flaherty as a way to pay back, and really pay forward, the support the Flaherty’s had received from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).

Our History

Not only for prolonging Denise’s life but also for forgiving a large amount of outstanding bills at the time of her passing. In 2003 Mr. Flaherty started out raising money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation via pledges for the annual 100 Mile Ride for the Roses in Austin Texas.
