Tom's Backwater Slam: March 30th -March 31st

Tom Widenhofer is a 19 year old young man diagnosed with a reoccurant and aggressive cancerous brain tumor (Giloblastoma Multiforme). Tom has been a true fighter and crusader for a cure in battling his cancer for over five years at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Through three major brain surgeries, many years of chemotherapy and radiation, Tom has courageously battled his cancer forwarding the research of this disease. He is a true hero and inspiration.

On September 12, 2011, the Widenhofer family received some devastating news. A MRI confirmed that Tom’s cancer had returned in a very aggressive manor prompting Tom to re-enter into a quest to cure his disease through aggressive chemotherapy and more radiation. In an effort to help support the Widenhofer family with the escalating medical bills, we are having a benefit, Tom’s Backwater Slam. It will be an inshore/ backcountry fishing tournament at Glades Haven in Everglades City on Saturday March 31, 2011. Also included in the weekend’s activities will be a Dinner Auction at The Oyster House in Everglades City on Friday, March 30, 2011.
