Experience an un-fore-getable time teeing off to fight cancer.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Parkland, Coral Springs, Margate, and Coconut Creek is holding their first annual “Swing Fore A Cure” Golf Event on Saturday, May 22, 2021, at The Country Club of Coral Springs.
“The American Cancer Society’s mission matters more than ever,” said Event Lead Chris Fletcher.
After being diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2019, he has been cancer-free for over a year.
“Cancer patients still need support during this crisis,” he said. “Funds raised help the American Cancer Society to continue with cancer research, the 24/7 helpline, and for continuing services to get patients the care and support they need where we can.”
