Please join our family as we host the 6th Annual Do It ‘Fore’ Dan Golf Tournament to raise money for medical research seeking cures and treatments for the devastating disease, MPS (Mucopolysaccharidoses). This condition has affected many lives in the tri-state area and around the United States and sadly has taken the lives of many do it for dan smalleras well. There are seven different types of MPS and our son Dan, had MPS type II or Hunter Syndrome. Dan fought an incredible battle against MPS for a little over 19 years but lost the fight in January of 2016. Although Dan is no longer with us, it is our hope that we continue to raise both awareness and funds for this terrible progressive and degenerative disease. The tournament will be held at Chisel Creek Golf Course in Landenberg, Pennsylvania.
