Shawn Blankenship, Delaware
2022 DC Golf Recipient
Shawn is an incredibly caring nurse's aide. Recently he was diagnosed with 111A Adenocarcinoma of the lung. He underwent surgery and is currently getting four rounds of chemotherapy. He has not been able to work since the surgery and the Chemotherapy has him so weak that he is not strong enough to go back to work yet. Due to extenuating circumstances, Shawn is in jeopardy of being evicted in addition to owing on other bills and leaving him with no reserve. Funds raised at this year's Betterment Golf Tournament helped Shawn with his bills so he can get back on his feet.
