The 2nd Annual Suzette Strickland Golf Tournament - ECHO Associates

A Beacon of Light on Your Cancer Care Journey


The 2nd Annual Suzette Strickland Golf Tournament

We are pleased to announce the return of the annual Suzette Strickland Golf tournament. This tournament was launched in 2022 and was the brainchild of Charlie Strickland in honor of his wife Suzette, who was diagnosed with AML Leukemia in 2019. She was treated by Dr. Kapur and his fabulous team at ECHO and is now in remission. Having seen the financial struggles firsthand of fellow patients, the Strickland family has teamed up with The ECHO Cancer Foundation to raise money to support their amazing work.
