Johnstown area resident and avid golfer Betty Campbell (front), a “spry 88 years young,” had a recent wish fulfilled at an area golf course. Betty has been battling cancer and recently elected “comfort care” provided by Bridges Hospice, Trafford. The Bridges PPG (Personalized Patient Goals) program was created to grant a patient’s wish, need or request. Bridges PPG program in combination with Champion Lakes Golf Club was honored to grant Betty’s “special wish.” Surrounded by her family as well as the Bridges and Champion Lakes staff, Betty and seven of her closest friends spent Monday morning, July 8, golfing, laughing, reminiscing and enjoying each other’s company at Champion Lakes Golf Course. All of this was followed by a lunch at the Fairfield Township golf course and meeting Pittsburgh Pirate great and Champion Lakes owner Dick Groat (in the photo behind Betty). In addition, Champion Lakes Golf Club hosted a “Let’s Beat Cancer” golf outing Thursday, July 25, benefiting the Westmoreland Chapter of the American Cancer Society.
