Foundation Raises Over $80,000 For Cancer Patients

The first place team winners included Chris Greenwell, Dr. Belal Khokhar, Brandon Higdon and Thys Runia in the golf tournament played at Barefoot Resort and Golf in North Myrtle Beach to benefit cancer patients at McLeod Seacoast in Little River.

The McLeod Health Foundation benefiting McLeod Loris Seacoast raised over $80,000 at the McLeod Seacoast Cancer Benefit Golf Classic presented by Sandhills Bank. This two-day golf event was held on Friday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the cancer patients at McLeod Seacoast through the HOPE Fund (Helping Oncology Patients Everyday).

The HOPE Fund was established for cancer patient support services and to provide the oncology staff with the improved access for the immediate assistance for their patients. The HOPE Fund assists patients who have financial barriers to care. Without the HOPE Fund, McLeod Seacoast would not be able to offer patients transportation to treatments, assistance with pain and nausea medications and specialized nutrition. It also supports volunteer programs and educational resources for cancer patients and families.

“The generous donations from this event allow the McLeod Health Foundation to continue to provide the resources needed to benefit our cancer patients,” said Nichole Rivers, director of McLeod Health Foundation.

The Friday evening After Play ParTee at the Dye Clubhouse included a gourmet strolling dinner, silent auction and live music. Players received awards at a luncheon on Saturday after the tournament.
