St. Louis, MO. (Mar. 20, 2019) – Fry-Wagner will be hosting our 9th Annual Wendy Knop Memorial Golf Tournament on July 20, 2019 at The Links at Dardenne in O’Fallon, Missouri.
Fry-Wagner has been hosting the annual Wendy Knop Memorial Golf Tournament since 2011, in support of families in need, with emphasis on individuals and families suffering from cancer. This year, Fry-Wagner will be supporting Steve Perrone. Steve is the father of a Fry-Wagner employee and was recently diagnosed, at the age of 58, with stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. Steve is a loving husband, father of four and grandfather of six. Steve has undergone the intrusive Whipple surgery, which caused various complications and led to many hospital visits following the surgery. He has now started his journey with Chemotherapy, and has kept his quick wit humor and love for life. Steve is an amazing man with an amazing family, who has coined the phrase #PERRONESTRONG as their slogan throughout his fight.
“When you have a family like I do, you do nothing alone. My dad is our hero. We are all doing this together. Seriously, you pick one of us to battle with; you pick all of us. We are his warriors and we will beat this.” said Samantha Keim, daughter of Steve Perrone.
Less than 3% of cancer funding goes towards pancreatic cancer, while 27 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every day. The Perrone family has made it their mission to spread awareness for pancreatic cancer, while also raising money for research.
“There is hope, but funding for research is limited for this diagnosis. With all the recent research, the prognosis of Pancreatic Cancer has risen from 10-20% cure rate, to 40%. This diagnosis is no longer a death sentence! My Dad can and will beat this!” said Elizabeth Benetatos, Fry-Wagner Lead National Account Coordinator, and daughter of Steve Perrone.
We are proud to support Steve and his family in his battle against pancreatic cancer while also raising awareness of pancreatic cancer in our community. We invite you to join us in Steve’s fight.
