A Note From
“I have had three grandparents, and my father pass away from cancer. Supporting the American Cancer Society is a cause that hits home, cancer is an awful disease. Tee Up For Life is an opportunity to keep raising money while having fun.
One of our goals again this year is to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, from which my father passed away last year. We need to strive to raise funds to promote early detection and further research about this aggressive form of cancer. When you get it, it’s too late, we need to raise awareness for early detection. That's why last year we chose to fund a pancreatic research grant for Dr. Ryan Thomas at the University of Florida. We will continue to fund this grant for the next 2 years.
The Hope Lodge, in Gainesville, Florida, will continue to benefit from my tournament. This Lodge provides a safe place for families to go as they watch loved ones receive treatments. These families are often overlooked, they are families that have to uproot and change their life if their loved one has cancer and needs treatment.“
