Cancer will be defeated one day

Pictured above are brothers Eric, Joe, and Irv Philpot at the 2018 Melvin McCall “Strokes for Progress” Memorial Golf Tournament.

According to the Mayo Clinic, almost half of all men and a third of all women in the United States will receive a cancer diagnosis at some time in their lives. Most often a cancer diagnosis comes with little warning and news of it can result in a barrage of unending questions. When cancer strikes, it’s important to understand how we can support our loved ones while grounded in hope instead of giving into despair.

Joe Philpot, beloved member of the Philpot Family, has been battling brain cancer for almost 23 years. His courage, faith and positive outlook in the face of his difficult circumstances have and continue to encourage and inspire his friends and family.

The Philpot Law Firm joins with other companies and individuals in supporting The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at the Duke Cancer Center by participating in the Melvin McCall “Strokes for Progress” Memorial Golf Tournament on May 20, 2019, at the Pebble Creek Golf Club in Taylors, SC. This 19th annual event is hosted in memory of Melvin McCall, Sam Rosselli, Don Wallace, and Lib Hawkins. In addition to honoring Joe Philpot, this event will honor Cindy Payne Pryor. Both continue their courageous battles with Brain Cancer.

The mission is to ensure we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Brain Cancer by providing financial support to The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke; supporting their efforts in research with effective treatments and a hope of discovering a cure for Brain Cancer.

Please join the Philpot Family as they join with others in a quest to see cancer defeated. To make a tax-deductible donation to the tournament please visit,
