It’s that time of year again when the Market Cross Pub & Brewery will host
our 24th Annual Benefit Golf Outing on Friday, May 11th. This year we will be
helping a family member of one of our beloved employees. Elliot Ross is a very
special 10 year old who is battling Leukemia.
Elliot is an athletic, strong, energetic, and faithful 10 year old boy who lives
in Marietta, Pa and attends Donegal Intermediate School. He wants to be an
adoption lawyer when he grows up to help change children’s lives like his parents
have changed his.
In April of 2015, Elliot was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
B-cell, after experiencing pain in his legs. After numerous chemotherapy
treatments at Hershey Medical Center, Elliot was deemed in remission. Elliot
continued to receive monthly IV chemotherapy as well as daily oral
chemotherapy. With the cancer in remission, Elliot also continued to receive
routine blood work, spinal taps, and bone marrow aspirations. On October 10th,
2017 Elliot received a spinal tap, bone marrow aspiration and routine blood work,
all coming back clear and cancer free. However, on Oct 31st Elliot started to
experience pain in his legs, and on November 2nd, 2017 we learned that Elliot
relapsed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia B-cell again.
Elliot will remain at Hershey Medical Center for extensive treatment, as
well as travel to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to receive the new FDA
approved CAR-T cell Immunotherapy.
The outing will be held at the Mayapple Golf Links, 1 Mayapple Drive
