Story of Tammy & Maxine Golf Tournament

Many friendships last a lifetime. Rarer are friendships that have an impact on the community, and rarer still are those friendships that have a legacy that lives on long after the actual people have passed. Tammy Mattiello and Maxine Jones had such a powerful friendship. While both lives were tragically cut short by cancer, their friendship lives on through the Tammy and Maxine Golf Tournament.

Tammy and Maxine met in 2007 at the Misericordia Hospital where they nursed together on the same unit and became instant friends. They had a lot in common, including a love of family, their careers, and the paranormal. Tammy was a huge soccer fan, and Maxine became a super fan during the World and Euro Cup competitions. There was always a friendly rivalry between the two during those competitions, with Tammy cheering for Italy and Maxine for England.

In 2006, Tammy was diagnosed with breast cancer that went into remission for five years. In 2011, she suffered an aggressive recurrence in her liver. Maxine rushed to her side and did everything possible for her friend; sadly, Tammy passed away 10 days later. Maxine, along with fellow co-workers and friends Carrie-Anne VanderMey, Barb Loney, and Rita Jones, decided to do something to keep Tammy’s memory alive and came together to create the Tammy Mattiello Golf Tournament.

Maxine was an enthusiastic member of the Tournament organizing committee for the next three years, but tragically, in 2014, she was diagnosed with brain cancer. After a short battle, Maxine passed away in March of 2015. Members of the Tournament committee who were friends to Tammy and Maxine decided to change the name of the event to the Tammy and Maxine Golf Tournament, to honour the lives of these two amazing women and their abiding friendship.
