Steph Curry Makes Sizable Donation to Web.com Tour Player Whose Wife Is Battling Cancer

Steph Curry may have finished in last place at the Ellie Mae Classic last week, but that didn't stop him from doing something thoughtful for a player on the Web.com Tour.

During a press conference after he finished the second round at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, Curry revealed that he made a $25,000 donation to the GoFundMe page for Jenn Harrington, the wife of Web.com Tour player Scott Harrington, who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma.

"I was made aware of Scott Harrington, who is a professional Web.com Tour (player), who has taken a leave (of absence) to be with his wife who is battling cancer. I can't put into words the thoughts and feelings around what their family is going through. I had a chance to talk to him on the phone this morning and let him know that as part of my participation in the tournament this year, that I was going to donate $25,000 to the GoFundMe page that's there to support his family as his wife is battling. The Ellie Mae Tournament is donating $15,000 as well," Curry told reporters in Hayward last week.

According to the Harrington's GoFundMe page, here's what Jenn has had to endure:

"In August of 2017, Jenn was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, then deemed free and clear in December of the same year. On May 11, 2018, doctors informed her the cancer had returned, and that Jenn would have to endure an intense chemotherapy program for two to three months, eventually undergoing a bone marrow transplant to hopefully rid herself of the cancer for good. In turn, Scott has applied for a Special Medical/Family Crisis Extension from the Web.com Tour so that he can be with Jenn during her courageous battle, putting his chase for a PGA TOUR card on hold to be with her."
