The Sulphur community came together last Saturday to assist a local family struggling with cancer.
In May, Paige Mize was diagnosed with Stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer and is now having to travel back and forth to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas for treatments.
The 28-year-old mother of two young girls, Kendall and Kimber, along with her husband, Eli, were uplifted last Saturday when sponsors of a benefit golf tournament along with donations from friends and family raised over $25,500 to help defray costs associated with her cancer treatment.
The benefit tournament was held on the Sulphur-Davis Elks Golf and Country Club course with a full field of 96 golfers, and was an example of how local citizens can come together in a time of need, said organizers Haley and Jordan Barefoot.
