On June 15 of this year our friend and golfing buddy passed away from a desmoid tumor. Joan had golfed several years with a group of ladies every Tuesday morning during the summer months. This group has grown over the years and Joan was always present with a friendly smile and words of encouragement for the less experienced golfers. In her memory a golf tournament was held at Indian Lake golf course on Sept 29 in Halifax Nova Scotia to raise money for the foundation. Both golfers and nongolfers played 18 holes of golf and participated in a putting contest. A dinner and prizes followed this. We were able to raise $2200.00 for Desmoid Tumor Research. Plans are now underway to have a tournament again next year and we hope to raise even more money.
