5th Annual Barbara Croker (Lyons) Golf Tournament For Dercum’s Disease Research
In 1996, Barbara Croker (Lyons) was diagnosed with this dreadful disease and
has undergone 39 major surgeries in the last 16 years. After a recent increase
in the diagnosis of Dercum’s Disease, there may be light at the end of the
tunnel for Barbara and other Dercum’s Disease patients. We have found hope in
researcher Dr. Karen Herbst of San Diego, CA. She has begun to research the
causes and possible cure for Dercum’s Disease. All proceeds from the tournament
will be donated to Dr. Herbst who is focusing on finding the gene or genes that
contribute to the development of Dercum's disease.
Please join us for a friendly round of golf to help research Dercum’s Disease!
