When Destiny Strikes

When Destiny Strikes
When J. L. Lewis was getting ready for another Champions golf tour event in 2012 had to find a Doctor as he had a pain in his back. This turned into a series of events when it was discovered he had Multiple Myeloma a bone marrow cancer. Lewis says that going through something like this you have to face it but a breakthrough was found in chemotherapy and using healthy stem cells and injected back into his blood stream.

Lewis had to face the reality of changing his career, from an active healthy golfer he had to find another outlet for his talents. This type of Myeloma is treatable but not curable so Lewis must be under continued blood tests. As they say when life hand you a lemon you make good use of your time and talents. He was hired by the Mill Creek Country Club new owners as head golf Pro and it lead him to share his talents with golf lessons and running a new outlook with this Country Club.

J. L. Lewis is a very outgoing personality and shows a friendly face to all golfers who enter the golf club. He keeps busy with golf sessions of new beginners, youth and private or group golf lessons. Mill Creek Country Club is destined to become a success that includes that Lewis and the new owners continue to drive to improve the golf club. Having J. L. involved is sure to keep things going in the right direction.

As long as J.L. stays active and keeps his illness in control he should stay healthy for years to come. We find J.L. has a positive outlook and a pleasant personality that helps keeps members of the golf club in tuned in the right direction. There have been many upheavals in the course of the Country Club so with J.L. at the desk it will help keep tempers in line and make for a successful golf club.

The new owners have a ways to go to bring the club back to 27 holes but they are optimistic that it will happen in the near future. So 2015 will be a turning point to a complete 27 hole golf course. J. L. will be working right along with the owners to make this happen soon.

We all wish J. L. well and hope he masters this illness and keep his health in good standing and back to playing golf as a master teacher of the ways of golf. He is the best thing that has happened to the Mill Creek Country Club.
