Everyday Angels, the local non-profit organization that provides short-term financial relief, encouragement and hope to those in need, is partnering with a team of Cherokee County residents to host Hope For Kids, a golf tournament benefiting a local family.
The McMahons were delivered devastating news when their eleven-year-old son Matthew was diagnosed with a malignant tumor behind his kneecap. Matthew was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. According to his doctors, Matthew’s tumor appears localized and has not spread. Treatment began with aggressive chemo treatments and a scheduled surgery to remove the tumor last month. Matthew’s journey through chemo has been difficult: emergency room visits, pain, high fevers, infection, sores and allergic reactions are just some of the things he’s had to deal with since starting his journey. His family struggles each day with spending as much time as they can with him while juggling work and caring for his younger sister.
The McMahon family has had help from family members and friends, including a close family friend who has organized the Hope For Kids Golf Tournament on Monday, July 14th at Bridge Mill Athletic Club. This event will begin with an 8 a.m. registration followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. An awards ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. A raffle and silent auction will also be included. To participate in the tournament, the cost is $450 for a foursome or $125 for an individual. To sign up, please contact Jay Cox at 404-394-3417 or Dolores Delgado at 770-294-4342.
