Golfers vs. Brain Cancer Golf Tournament
Reaching Out, Raising Funds to Find a Cure
In 2008 at the age of 40, Melissa Pittman and her family were faced with a shocking diagnosis – an inoperable brain tumor – and her life was forever changed. Initially given just three years to live, Melissa began her journey to survive. With chemo and radiation treatments to keep the tumor from growing, Melissa continued to beat the odds for eight unimaginable years. Early in 2016, the tumor again began to grow and Melissa lost her battle that spring. But her inspiration to find a cure lives on and remains the focus of this tournament.
Now in its ninth year, Golfers vs. Brain Cancer has raised over $500,000 to support brain cancer research for that very purpose – to find a cure. To date, these funds have helped support ongoing research and resources to treat brain cancer patients at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Please join us on Friday, Nov. 17 for the 2017 benefit tournament at East Lake Woodlands Country Club. Consider a sponsor-level donation, contribute to the live or silent auction, bring a foursome, and come out for a great day of golfing for a great cause!
Together we can change lives today.
We’re all in this fight together, and we’d be honored to have your help. Getting started is easy and the rewards are endless. Help us get closer to a cure.
