About Christopher Perri Memorial Billfish Tournament

The Christopher Perri Memorial Billfish Tournament is the legacy of a husband, father, son, and friend. Chris was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) at age 33 and went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on January 8, 2021 after a courageous seven-month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

One of Chris' dreams was for others to live in a world where there are cures for cancer. The funds from this tournament directly benefit Leukemia research at UNC Lineberger's Comprehensive Cancer Center under the stewardship of his oncologist, Dr. Josh Zeidner.

The First Annual Christopher Perri Symposium on Cancer Research was held earlier this year at UNC. It brought together some of the brightest minds in the cancer research field where advancements in treatments and outcomes were shared. The findings were met with excitement and created even more motivation to continue fighting and pushing forward.

"Nearly 40% of all new cancer therapies approved since 2000 were first discovered and approved for a blood cancer." (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Research) Cancer touches everyone and blood cancer research truly matters to everyone.

We are honored to continue giving back in Chris' memory. Helping others was part of who he was and the funds raised through this tournament are truly making an impact.
