Please join us for the Second Annual Drive Out Sarcoma Golf Tournament held at Foxchase golf club in Stevens, PA in honor of Ginny McCreary and her fight against stage IV CIC-DUX4 round cell sarcoma. This is a four-man scramble with a shotgun start at 1pm, dinner to follow. Dinner is included in the cost for all golfers. For those who do not wish to golf, please register for a Dinner Only ticket.
All proceeds will be donated to Dr. Peter Anderson at The Cleveland Clinic to support Sarcoma Cancer research.
The Cleveland Clinic is one of the biggest sarcoma centers in the world. What's different about them is that their research strategies go the extra mile with the right amount of innovation, safety and strategic thinking focused on long term outcomes. You have to test those limits when working with Sarcoma, because the same treatment protocols won't work on rare cases. We need a hole one, not a par! Let's help them drive this research home. Things are moving faster in the medical research world. Your money will go directly to research to help speed up things for new treatments and therapies for Sarcoma Cancer patients.
We hope you can join us for this fun and inspiring event to Drive Out Sarcoma!
In the summer of 2019, Ginny noticed a small lump on her hip that overtime started to grow and cause pain. After an MRI it was determined that Ginny had a soft tissue mass on her left thigh. A biopsy was done declaring the mass a benign hematoma. It was removed in early October. A few days after surgery Ginny went to the ER after coughing up blood. A CT of the chest revealed in-numerous nodules all over her lungs. After 9 days in the hospital and 74 tests, Ginny was diagnosed with stage IV CIC-DUX4 round cell sarcoma on October 21st, 2019. The primary tumor was what they thought was the hematoma and it had already spread to the lungs, making it stage IV at diagnosis with a very poor prognosis for long term survival. Since November 2019 Ginny had been on multiple chemo treatments, had whole brain radiation, radiation and surgery to her left thigh. On August 15, 2021 Ginny passed away peacefully at home following her courageous battle. The family and friends Ginny left behind will continue to fight this horrible disease in her honor. Please continue to donate in honor of Ginny. We won't stop until we find a cure.
