A benefit golf tournament will be held at Whittle Springs Golf Course on May 23rd at 8 am with a shotgun start. Lunch will be provided. The cost is $40 per player. The tournament is for a man named Chris Janeway. He is a 41 year old father to three girls. He has had 3 heart attacks and many complications including but not limited to congestive heart failure, a-fib, he had less than 15 % of his heart left and the doctors here in Knoxville told him that there wasn’t anything else they could do. He went to Vanderbilt to see if he was a candidate for the LVAD (left ventricle assistive device) which works as a bridge to keep him alive until he can get on the heart transplant list. He was chosen and has since had the procedure and is in therapy. He has to stay in Nashville for 6 weeks to make sure there are no complications. His sister in law came from Montana to stay with him. The reason for the tournament is that he can go on the heart transplant list after the 6 weeks but has to have 10,000 in the bank for rejection medication before they will put him on the list. If you have any questions please feel free to call me, my name is Dan Hatmaker and you can reach me at Daniel.Hatmaker@mcnabb.org or 865-318-9710.
