Macy Easom Golf Tournament benefits Childhood Cancer Families

Yesterday, Middle Georgia Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine sponsored the 4th annual Macy Easom Memorial Charity Golf Tournament, benefitting the Joanna McAfee Childhood Cancer Foundation. Macy was a young girl who, like Joanna, lost her battle against childhood cancer. Macy's parents and Joanna's parents (along with help from JMCCF and MGO employees and volunteers) organize this annual benefit to raise awareness and to provide tangible support to families of children currently going through their own treatment. It was a privilege to be a part of this event near Warner Robins, GA (where the JMCCF is headquartered). This fundraiser is a heart-warming way in which the memory of Macy, Joanna and other children from this area can be honored by helping the families of children who are currently facing the same challenges.
