Boca Java Donates $30,000

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Bruce Frcek, founder and president of Boca Java, announced his company has donated $30,000 to the Palm Beach Area Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

The funds will be used by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to support ongoing efforts to find a cure for blood cancers.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The Society's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than $550.8 million for research specifically targeting blood cancers.

Frcek founded Boca Java in 2002. The direct-to-consumer online gourmet coffee company is headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and was included on the Internet Retailers Top 300 List for three consecutive years.

This sizable donation will help the society in its critical medical research. Frcek chose to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society because of his own personal experience with the organization — his mother died from a blood cancer.
