Chuck has an incurable form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma Multiform. Please consider donating or walking to help raise money for Chuck's treatments.

Help Chuck Stay Healthy – WALK or DONATE Today!


Last year, Chuck was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiform brain tumor. After 2 major brain surgeries, 6 weeks of intensive radiation, 15 months of chemotherapy, and a year of weekly blood tests, Chuck’s health is miraculously stable. There is no new tumor growth, but the battle is not over yet.

There is no cure for Chuck’s brain cancer.

Chuck will need to continue to have MRIs every 8 weeks to help monitor the tumor. At the first sign of changes in the tumor, Chuck will face more chemotherapy and may require additional brain surgeries. Bi-weekly acupuncture treatments have helped raise Chuck’s low blood cell counts, boost his immune system, and aid his digestive system. He works with a nurse practitioner who specializes in nutrition, and he follows a specific supplement regimen to maintain his health. Chuck currently has insurance, but he must pay a large monthly deductible for his care, as well as co-pays for medical visits, blood work, and medications. The additional costs for Chuck’s acupuncture and supplements are not covered by insurance.

Please consider donating today to help Chuck stay healthy!
