Golf Tournament Planned to Benefit Young Lady with Life-Altering Illnesses

Benefit Golf Tournament Shingle CreekA benefit golf tournament is taking place on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2009 at the award-winning Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando. The tournament will benefit Jyllean Williams who was diagnosed with Mercury poisoning two years ago and has since developed Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Epstein Barr Virus.

At just 24 years of age, her life has literally been taken away from her. The symptoms Jyllean has are horrible. Her body can’t physically handle being around a lot of people or toxic smells. Thus, she is basically homebound except for her numerous doctor visits.  

The tournament is going to be a four person team scramble format. Check-in will begin at noon followed by a 1 p.m. tee time. The price per golfer is $100. The price includes all green and cart fees, range balls, valet parking, GPS Yardage System benefits, breakfast, a hot buffet style lunch and complimentary beverages on the course.

There will also be an awards ceremony with prizes for closet to the pin, hole in one, etc. and a silent auction held during lunch.
When Jyllean was diagnosed with Mercury toxicity she was put on a very strict high fat, organic diet. She can only eat natural, organic chicken and certain raw, organic vegetables (those only grown above the ground). Jyllean can’t use or be around anyone that has used regular fabric softeners, colognes, perfumes, candles, shampoos, etc… (only non-scented, non-toxic). She has been unable to finish her degree at UF and is unable to have a job. She also hasn’t been to a family function, holiday gathering, or out to eat in years.
Jyllean is on more than 25 different medications and supplements a day and also takes IV treatments. None of these medications or treatments is covered by insurance; every cost is incurred out of pocket. She wants nothing more than to get her life back.

Please come out to enjoy a great game of golf for a great cause. All money raised will help with her rising medical expenses. To play, become a sponsor, or make a donation please contact Michelle at or 352-205-2385. You can also visit for more information.
