Irvine, CA (Vocus) February 17, 2010
Warrior Custom Golf is proud to announce their support of the 10th Annual St. Jude Golf Classic, held on April 19th in Jacksonville, Florida. Katelyn Atwell will be hosting the event in an attempt to raise three million dollars to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Katelyn Atwell was diagnosed with cancer at age twelve and got an infection in her brain that no one has ever survived for more than 48 hours. She spent a year and a half in a coma, had two strokes and now uses a crutch to walk. Even after all this she is still attempting to play in this years tournament some how.
"I would like to thank Warrior Custom Golf for being a part of the Katelyn Atwell St. Jude Golf Classic. St. Jude is a hospital that treats children with catastrophic diseases. I love the name Warrior since those of us who are patients live the life of a warrior. We fight everyday for our life. St. Jude gives us the tools and knowledge to be able to fight. I am so proud to have Warrior be a part of our tournament. I thank them for helping the kids at St. Jude," said Katelyn Atwell.
St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made there have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
About Katelyn Atwell:
One chilly day in December of 2001, Sharon Atwell stood transfixed, watching her youngest daughter carry the Olympic torch through the streets of Memphis. Amid a deafening tumult of cheers, shouts, sirens and applause, 15-year-old Katelyn Atwell waved serenely at the crowd and, with a radiant smile, quietly passed the Olympic flame to her mother. Only two years earlier, Katelyn’s own flame had almost been extinguished by a bacterial infection that had catapulted her into the yawning void of a coma. Her journey back to the light has been slow, tortuous, and - in the words of many St. Jude researchers and health care providers - miraculous.
