The West Chester Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #186 will be hosting a charity golf outing Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Beckett Ridge Golf Club, which will benefit a local child’s wish to visit Disney World.
Yosselin Villatoro of Liberty Township, who is fighting cancer, is event’s honorary wish child. Her wish is to visit the princesses and to enjoy the rides at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.
Yosselin was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer that started in the femur of her left leg and spread to her lungs, just before Christmas.

- Support overwhelms young cancer victim’s family
Since then, she has had surgeries to remove eight inches of her femur, replacing it with an expandable metal rod, and to remove tumors. She has also been hospitalized countless times for treatments, infections and transfusions.
Net proceeds from the golf outing will go towards Yosselin’s trip with her family to Disney World.
The golf outing will begin with a shotgun start at noon. Registration begins at 11 a.m.
