Young Immigrant Makes Good in Finance, Donates to Cancer Charity

Goldco Precious Metals' Trevor Gerszt Donates $1,800 to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

WOODLAND HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Trevor Gerszt, the young son of hard-working South African immigrants to the United States, founded the highly successful precious metals company, Goldco Precious Metals, in 2006 -- and has always been motivated to give back to the community.

Goldco Precious Metals would like to highlight the contributions of Gerszt to support the efforts of the Seattle-based Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, to eradicate cancer and many other diseases from the world. Gerszt recently donated $1,800 to the research center, in the memory of his mother, Gail Heather Gerszt, who passed away in 2000 from breast cancer.

Gerszt hopes the donation will aid the Center's efforts to find cures for the world's most common human diseases -- and reduce the amount of pain suffered by those who contract them. In addition to treatment and new studies, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center also focuses on the prevention of disease, studying how preventive measures such as lifestyle changes can reduce the risk and avoid the need for reactive treatment.

Gerszt said about his support of the center, "there is nothing more gratifying about my financial success than having the ability to help those in need, especially those suffering from life-altering illnesses. All the good work we do at Goldco Precious Metals would mean little, except for the opportunity to help people -- whether helping our customers protect their retirement assets, or helping cancer patients extend and improve their lives."

If you or your organization would like to donate to support the great research and work done at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, please find more information at http://www.fhcrc.org/en/how-to-help.html
