“Tee Time” with the Kids at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children

by Jun 26, 2017Member Updates

PGA Tour player Ken Duke and FAPA member June Hyjek made an appearance at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children on May 17?for a book reading of June’s book,?Being Grace ? A Story for Children about Scoliosis.?Being Grace intends to raise awareness of Scoliosis and shows us the emotional consequences of the condition through the story of Grace, a young giraffe who is diagnosed at an early age.

Ken Duke has five professional worldwide wins, including his first PGA Tour Win at the 2013 Travelers Championship. In the 7th grade, Ken was diagnosed with Scoliosis and underwent surgery in which a 16-inch metal rod was attached to his spine.? Just six months after surgery ? while playing in a back-brace — Ken won Medalist honors at a District Tournament and he just kept going. He was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America in 2014 with the Ben Hogan Award for remaining active in golf despite a physical handicap or serious illness.? Is also a member of the Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame and the Reddie Hall of Honor at Henderson State University.

Being Grace?is a great book that provides a better understanding of Scoliosis and how to overcome how others may view and interact with you.? Grace, the giraffe, is a great example for young children diagnosed with Scoliosis,? said Ken.

Being Grace intends to raise awareness of Scoliosis and shows us the emotional consequences of the condition through the story of Grace, a young giraffe who is diagnosed at an early age.

With her curved neck, Grace finds herself bullied at school because she looks different from the other giraffes.? But her crooked neck allows her to do something none of the other giraffes can do, and she begins to understand that something that may seem wrong can actually be right.? Grace learns that all that matters is what she believes, not what other people say.? She finds joy in just being herself, and accepts that all she can do is be ?Grace.?

Take a journey to self-acceptance with Grace, as she realizes that perfect comes in all shapes, sizes and colors ? even crooked.
