Golf Outing In Memory Of Fenton Teen To Raise Money For Local Children With Cancer

Cancer is a terrifying disease for anyone to face, let alone children.  Still, every day, children and families in our own backyard deal with cancer, it’s treatment, and the reality of what the disease can do.  Check out how you can help battle cancer and get a round of golf in at the same time.

Katie Wyatt was just 11 years old when she was diagnosed with renal cell cancer, a disease that attacks the kidneys.   The young girl from Fenton fought bravely for three years before the cancer ultimately took her life.  Katie is remembered by friends and family for her optimism, her outgoing nature, and how she never let the disease take away her love for life.

Now the Katie Wyatt Memorial Foundation is holding it’s second annual golf outing to both remember Katie and to raise funds to help other area kids that are fighting cancer.  The outing takes place on August 3rd at Fenton Farms Golf Club.

Last year the outing raised over $20,000 which went to granting the wishes of three local teens.  This year funds will go towards helping Jesse Hourigan, a 17 year old Fenton High School student who is dealing with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

For more information on the outing, Jesse, Katie or the foundation, visit the website for the Katie Wyatt Memorial Foundation.
