The family and friends of Charles Bennett are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against cancer. Please show your support!

The family of Charles Bennett are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against cancer. Charlie was diagnosed with Stage IV Squmous Cell Carcinoma of the Tonsil in August, 2011. He underwent Chemo and Radiation for the treatment of the cancer for 3 months. After 3 months of treatment, scans showed a mass on his lung which he had a surgical biopsy done then followed by Radiation. More spots have now shown up in his lungs, which he will now begin Chemo treatment for those tumors. Now the diagnoses has changed to Stage IV Squmous Cell Carcinoma, Metastatic to the lung.

For a better understanding of the type of cancer Charlie has: it started in the tonsil and spread to his blood. This effect is like throwing a bucket of seeds out and waiting to see where they sprout. Now the tumors are attaching to the lungs.

Charlie is the husband of Corliss, Father to Sara and Step-Father to Sylvia and Randa.

He was not able to work for several months but is now back working as long as he can. The insurance covers some of the expenses but with the high tech scans and tests that have to constantly be done, insurance does not cover it all.

This battle has drained the family both mentally and financially. Charlie is in a battle of his life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry. We can't change this disease, but we can change how we fight it.

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

God Bless You,
The Family of Charles Bennett
