Kevin Atwell Golf Benefit Set For Aug. 25 At Sherwood
By Golf // August 22, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The Inaugural Kevin Atwell Golf Benefit will be held on Saturday Aug. 25 at the Sherwood Golf Club in Titusville Florida.
Atwell was diagnosed with testicular cancer four years ago at the age of 24, and has waged a courageous fight fending off the cancer as it spread through his body.
After three years of fighting, Atwell was declared cancer free and thought the battle was over. In a turn for the worst, Kevin now faces an even greater challenge by trying to overcome PNS (Paraneoplastic Syndrome). This extremely rare disease causes his body to attack itself, as it believes there is still cancer present.
Due to this disease, Atwell is now confined to a wheelchair, has limited control over his body and has tremors which result in incredible pain.
“As you can imagine, treating a disease such as PNS is extremely expensive requiring 24 hour care, multiple medications and regular trips to specialists throughout the country,” said David Atwell, event organizer.
“Raising funds to help Kevin receive medical care while a cure is being researched is essential to his long term outlook.”
