The inspirational story of a St. Jude’s patient and her artwork which will be featured on headcovers at this week’s WGC

Published

on

At this week’s FedEx St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind, Team TaylorMade is joining forces with St. Jude to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the fight against pediatric cancer and diseases.

Through Birdies For St. Jude, each time a golfer makes a birdie at this week’s WGC event, a donation will be generated.

This week TaylorMade athletes will also sport special-edition St. Jude headcovers featuring artwork from several young patients.

One of the themes you will see this week on the headcovers of some TaylorMade athletes are ice cream sundaes. The ice cream sundae artwork was designed by 13-year-old patient Victoria.

Victoria is a girl who has been through two surgeries for brain tumors, a stroke, a seizure, paralysis on her left side, rehab to relearn how to walk and talk as well as doctor’s warnings that she might lose 50 percent of her sight and 30 percent of her hearing. Then a third operation to remove the surgical clips from the second.

Her artworks, which will be on show at this week’s event, are forged in positivity and represent the best of the human spirit. On her ice cream sundae panting which will feature prominently in the bags of several pros this week, Victoria said

“I like to paint things I believe in and I love. So, sundaes, I absolutely love. I mean, who doesn’t?”

A family friend, Marlene, who founded the Team Victoria fundraiser, which has raised more than $200,000 for St. Jude spoke about the teenager’s positivity in the face of adversity, saying

“She’s just our ray of light. I’ve never seen her down, not one time. She’s just amazing.”

Victoria went through 30 days of high-dose radiation treatments at the world’s first proton therapy center solely for children. She still lives with the tumors, which have shrunk in size. At just 13 her paintings have been auctioned to raise money for St. Jude and she is the face of ‘Team Victoria’, a St. Jude Walk/Run team that’s expanded to multiple cities.

Her dream when she grows up? To become a radiation oncologist at St. Jude.

Almost as heartbreaking as Russ Wilson NOT HANDING IT OFF on the last play of Super Bowl XLIX. Caps means I’m yelling.
