LEDA'S LEGACY MINI-GOLF FUNDRAISER
MAY 18th, 2013 - MULLIGAN'S ISLAND
1000 NEW LONDON AVE. CRANSTON, RI 02910
On March 12, 2011, our mother, Leda Proulx was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive brain cancer. Our lives were thrown into a tailspin as she fought through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy over the subsequent year, even opting to participate in a clinical trial in Boston.
Ultimately, after a brave and graceful battle, we lost Mom on August 19, 2012. Since she was such a giving and caring soul, we vowed to continue her legacy of contributing to others’ wellbeing. With this in mind, we are organizing the first annual event entitled: “Leda’s Legacy” on May 18, 2013 at the Mulligan's Island in Cranston RI. This will be a mini golf benefit for the RI Hospital Department of Adult Social Works.
One of the things we realized through our journey was just how tremendous and daunting the expenses the treatments for this type of cancer(and by extension, all types of cancer) are. We were very blessed as most of these expenses were covered by Leda's medical coverage. However, not all who are suffering from cancer are so fortunate. 25% of those suffering from brain cancer in RI do not have any coverage. Our goal is to help all who find their financial situation threatened by this disease deal with the day to day expenses such as gas, food, a place to stay if they are from out of town etc. RI Hospital Department of Adult Social Works has such a fund and it is our plan to contribute the proceeds from this event to this fund.
Tickets in advance are $16.
Tickets the day of the event will be $18.
Please join us in honor of Leda on May 18th at the Mulligan's Island in Cranston.
What a way to kickoff the summer while raising funds for a great cause!
Please spread the word!
We can't wait to see you there!!
With Lots of Love,
The Proulx Family
