Keys Charity Fund 19th Annual Golf Classic
The Keys Charity Fund Annual Golf Classic is dedicated to serving the community by benefitting a local family in need of financial support. The event has raised over a half million dollars for families in need over its 19 year history.
This years' recipient - Christopher Schlemmer
An energetic and smart kiddo, Christopher suffers from a rare metabolic diagnosis of Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation. His diagnosis impacts him in every aspect of his development, in which he does not eat by mouth and uses a wheelchair for mobility. In addition to being born with a genetic metabolic disorder, PMM2 CDG, he’s had multiple surgeries, therapies, and constant medical attention his entire life. Christopher is nonverbal and utilizes a feeding tube and wheelchair to support his disability.
Christopher’s family has dedicated themselves to accessing medical care and therapies that best help Christopher progress. They regularly travel out of state to access intensive therapy where specialists in the area of neuro motor disorders have helped Christopher gain motor skills to enable him to best help his caregivers, access his environment, and help him learn to play more independently. Twice a year, he travels for intensive therapy, which costs around $20,000.
He will be soon starting an experimental treatment as part of a drug trial at Mayo Clinic which makes these therapies even more imperative. Christopher’s family also needs to modify their home with an addition so that Christopher’s bedroom can be on the first floor. As he gets older (and bigger) it will be increasingly harder for his family to carry him up the stairs. It is hoped that the addition can also include an accessible bathroom to make meeting all of Christopher’s selfcare and hygiene needs easier to meet.
