Baxter Lee Duddy, age 8, passed away in August of 2019 after bravely battling brain cancer for more than four years. Baxter (pictured) was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 4, and endured three major brain and spine surgeries, 102 radiation treatments and more than 28 chemo sessions. He fought hard bouncing back, but his little body just couldn’t handle it anymore. The Sept. 25 fundraiser is an opportunity for families to enjoy a great day of golf, camaraderie, prizes, and lots of laughter and fun in support of the BaxStrong Foundation, which raises funds and promotes initiatives to serve the people who need them most. The foundation sends Baxter’s Smile Boxes filled with goodies and encouragement to children fighting cancer in the United States and funds BaxStrong Fighter Flights so families can spend less time traveling to and from treatment facilities.
y and more time together. Baxter was fearless and always had a big smile on his face. He loved swimming, playing hide & seek, cooking, baking, watching You Tube kids and shopping. He loved other kids, especially babies.
