Loveland, Ohio – Ray Wene, graduated from Loveland High School in 1991 and he passed away in 2019 from brain cancer. His wife Tina has started a non-profit foundation in his name to raise money for brain cancer research at Jewish Hospital; money for local youth sports and families that may not be able to afford the costs involved, and a local church youth group. These were some of the most important things to Ray and we hope to carry his legacy on by providing support for these organizations.
They are having their first golf outing at Hickory Woods and would like to reach out to the local community for interests.
As stated above, Ray was diagnosed with Grade IV GBM in June of 2017. He fought a long and hard 29 months, and in November of 2019, “the Lord brought him home”. Ray’s faith was unshakable throughout those hard times; nothing broke him. Through his testimonial journey, he wanted to change the lives of others by bringing them closer to God. Ray was a passionate, loving man. He cared deeply about the youth programs held in church and kids who couldn’t pay to play. He desired to support them in any way he could, whether that be; financially or spiritually. Lastly, Ray’s biggest goal was to bring awareness to brain tumors and further research in the medical field. The proceeds will be donated and used to further his request for The Ray of Hope Foundation.
The number one goal for this foundation is to honor the life of Raymond Wene. “We will be supporting local youth faith-based programs, community youth sports, nurses education, and cancer research at The Jewish Hospital Brain Tumor Center.”
