The family of Kent Squires, a longtime Weston resident and a cancer survivor recovering from amputation surgery, is hosting a summer classic in benefit of his medical expenses.
The event will take place June 24, at the Deerfield Country Club. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and a shotgun start fires off at 9 a.m.
The family hopes funds raised can offset the cost of Squires’s prosthetic and medical needs for the future.
“We believe he is battling this change in his life in a positive manner,” said Rochelle Long, a family member. “He has his good days and bad, but with the support of family and friends, he is an inspiration to us all.”
Three years ago, Squires was diagnosed with sarcoma on the back of his knee and, according to family, his knee never healed correctly after radiation treatments.
The decision to amputate the leg was made in April. To continue through the healing process, Squires seeks progressive treatment to be fitted for a prosthetic.
Squires hopes to return to work within the next few months, depending on his healing and how well he is able to adapt to the new prosthetic, according to family.
