Leos Day of Golf and Event at La Vida
As many of you no doubt are aware there is a campaign to raise funds for a little British boy. Details as below. There is a special day arranged at Desert Springs and I have been asked to publish details on here. So there are below.
There is also an event in aid of this charity to be held in La Vida on Tuesday 28th February starting at 2.0pm with BBQ and entertainment.
A very special little 4 year old, Leo Bermejo, whose mum Karen and dad Jorge live in Palomares, has suffered five brain tumours over the last 17 months, undergoing four operations to remove them, the latest of which was at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool a week ago. The best chance of curing this once and for all is for him to have proton beam therapy treatment, followed by intensive physiotherapy and speech therapy. He and his mum have flown today to Oklahoma for the proton beam therapy in a clinic which has successfully treated other children suffering from this same, very rare, type of brain tumour. Fund raising has now paid for this initial treatment in the USA. However, more funds are needed to cover the costs of the physiotherapy and speech therapy plus specialist equipment Leo will need when he returns to Spain at the end of the treatment.
John has arranged for Desert Springs Golf Resort to host a day Golfing for Leo on Monday 27th February. The competition is a Texas Scramble, for teams of four players, with a shotgun start at 9.00 a.m. There will also be a raffle on the day to add to the funds. If anyone would like more details or to enter a team please call John on 617 770 309.
