About the Connecticut Cancer Foundation. The Connecticut Cancer Foundation (“CCF”) is a non-profit with a 501(c)(3) designation whose mission is to financially assist Connecticut cancer patients and their families and to fund cancer research. CCF was founded in 1987 by Connecticut native John Ellis, a former catcher for the NY Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers who recently lost his battle to cancer, thus the tournament has been renamed in his honor. CCF has granted over $7.4 million to more than 9,000 CT families dealing with the financial hardship caused by a cancer diagnosis. In addition, CCF has granted more than $2.7 million to support ongoing cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
