CarrollStrong Benefit and Dice Run

In Early 2016 a young 21 year old Garrett Carroll was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. In March of 2016 Garrett’s doctor performed a radical inguinal orchiectomy, removing the cancerous testicle. At the time of the surgery the lymph nodes appeared clear and his doctor was cautiously optimistic of his prognosis. During his next exam Garret did not receive the same positive diagnosis and additional surgery was scheduled. We are raising money to help cover medical and day-to-day expenses for Garrett Carroll, Kellsie and baby Kade, while Garrett recovers from a Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (RLND). This extremely invasive procedure removes abdominal lymph nodes and involves an incision from the sternum to several inches below the navel. The recovery period is 2 -3 months.

The event starts with a pancake breakfast and Dice Run Registration at Bumpus Harley Davidson, 2160 Whitten Road, Memphis, TN 38133; Second Stop: Leatherwood Motorcyle Works, Third Stop: Shakerag Bar and Grill, Fourth Stop: VFW Post 7175, Fifth Stop and Festivities:The Haystack, 6560 US Highway 51 N., Millington, TN 38053.

At The Haystack, there will be Champion BBQ Plates provided by Lickman BBQ for $8.00 per plate, tally sheet judging and prizes awarded for the run, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, a barrel of booze raffle and live music and more.  Live Music starts at 4:00 pm and features such bands as The No Hit Wonders, GTA (Grand Theft Audio), Monkey Business, The Nuttin Fancy Band, Cornfed Mafia, and Rick Camp and The Suburban Trunk Monkeys. Donation at the door is $5.00 for those not attending the dice run.

All donations will go directly to a fund that has been set up in Garrett’s name.
