Samantha and Miles Brown received cancer diagnoses just months apart. On August 23, 2019, Samantha, who was six years old at the time, was diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumor, a very rare form of kidney cancer which required removal of her left kidney and twenty rounds of chemotherapy treatment. Shortly thereafter, on December 13, 2019, Miles, who was two years old at the time, was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia, a fast-growing and aggressive cancer, and he spent fifty-four straight days at Riley Hospital and underwent six months of in-patient chemotherapy. Samantha and Miles were successfully treated by Dr. Michael Ferguson, a Pediatric Hematology Oncologist physician with Riley Children's Hospital at Indiana University Health. Today, both Samantha and Miles are in remission and cancer free!
Melissa, Jeff, Samantha, and Miles are forever grateful for Riley Children's Hospital and especially Dr. Ferguson. All proceeds from the second annual Fore The Kids Charity Golf Outing will go directly to the Samantha and Miles Brown Pediatric Cancer Research Fund to support Dr. Ferguson’s pediatric cancer research work and to ensure the best possible healthcare is always available to Indiana’s children; especially as it relates to pediatric cancer research. Dr. Ferguson’s research and commitment will ensure that this happens.
