A benefit golf tournament is being held at Riverside Golf Course to help defray the medical costs for Keimryn Lee.

Keimryn, 9, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in April. Her cancer has metastasized, and she had to have an internal prosthetic placed in her left femur, said her mother Askaskia Hobbs.

The benefit is being arranged by Richard Vasquez.

“I just decided that that’s what needed to be done because everyone goes through hardship when that comes up,” said Vasquez. “The biggest message of this is no one fights alone with cancer.”

Those interested should call the Riverside Golf Course at 361-573-4521 to sign up.

The entry fee is $400 per team of four players. The format will be a four person scramble. You can also sponsor a hole for $100.

Cash is preferred for tournament fees. General donations can also be made to Askaskia Hobbs.
