Scramble for a Cure

On Friday, October 24th, 2008 Jeffrey Cummings, a friend of Grayson Bradshaw's father, is hosting a golf tournament at The Golf Club at Castle Hills to benefit the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation. The best part is that you can play for free.

Grayson is from The Colony, TX. He was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma on November 8, 2006 at the age of 2. He has undergone 8 cycles of chemotherapy, surgeries, 2 stem cell transplants (causing him to fight a serious fungal infection), 15 cycles of radiation, and Accutane. In January of 2008, calcified spots that were thought to be dead started showing signs of growth. He and his family traveled to Sloan Kettering for scans and a biopsy. Lymph nodes were found to be positive for Neuroblastoma. Grayson had a significant abdominal surgery August 1st at Sloan Kettering. The surgery and high dose chemotherapy kept him in the hospital for a month. He will follow with another high dose chemotherapy and hopefully undergo antibody treatments at Sloan Kettering.

There are a few ways in which you can help.

  1. Play in the event as a single or build a 4-some. You can either contribute $150/person or play for free, and receive PGA Tour Superstore credit, by helping raise a little money by sending around a pre-drafted letter to friends and family (see website for details).
  2. If you’re not a golfer, you can help by sponsoring me in any an amount you’re comfortable with (there are no minimums).
  3. Send this to everyone you know.

Below you can find the tournament brochure which includes information on Lunch for Life, the tournament, and Grayson. We’re having to limit the field to 120 players, so please sign up sooner than later if you’d like to play. There will be plenty of give-aways, contests, dinner, and a silent auction with numerous autographed pieces of memorabilia.
