Thank you so much for your support of the 17th annual Links Fore Leukemia Golf Tournament! We are looking forward to a wonderful event this year on May 6, 2013 at a new venue...The Tribute and Old American Golf Clubs in The Colony. As you may know, The Tribute mimics some of the great renown Eurpoean courses and the Old American offers a nostalgic look back into golf in 1920 America.
We hope that you will join us as a sponsor or by forming a foursome of your friends, colleagues and family for this tournament that has a strong focus: to help advance the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of finding a cure for blood cancers and improving the quality of life of patients and their families.
Sponsors will receive first choice of course between the Tribute and Old American. Players will be filled in and can provide a preference on a first come first serve basis. We will do our best to place you accordingly. Players will recieve a courtesy player bag of goodies with thier registration along with complementary Links Fore Leukemia golf shirt and a chance to bid on some amazing live and silent auction items as well as take a chance on some fun challenge holes throughout the course.
Shotgun Start at 8:00 am with lunch, awards and auction immediately following the tournament. We hope to see you this spring on the greens! Questions about getting together your foursome or being a sponsor? Contact Ashley.Desper@lls.org or 972-996-5915.
2013 Links Fore Leukemia Golf Tournament Honored Hero
Cutler Fricke, Age 3
We are honored to have Cutler and his family be a part of our tournament this year.
On 9/11/2009, three days shy of being six months old, Cutler was diagnosed with AML and immediately admitted into the hospital. The first round of chemo was started immediately the next day. After completion of the first round of chemo, Cutler was said to be in remission but the doctors thought it would be best to perform a second round of chemo while beginning the search for a bone marrow donor. Because Cutler’s brother was not a match, an unrelated donor was found via cord blood and the stem cell transplant was performed on 12/3/2009. On 2/8/2010 Cutler was sent home with a g-tube in place until he could learn to eat again. After a return trip to the hospital in March 2010 due to an infection from his main line, Cutler has remained hospital and infection free. He has been meds free since August 2010 and now leads the normal life of a four year old super hero.
