TimTim Finkas, our "Captain Z", and the man whose imagination created the Hatefish, died of pancreatic cancer in 2013.

To honor the memory of our captain, we encourage all to donate what they can to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, which will support the search for treatments and cures such as the gene-based therapies being developed by his widow, Dr. Lisa Butterfield Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Surgery and Immunology, Hillman Cancer Research Center, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.
