The Family and friends of Carl Olsen have united in raising money to help off set Carl's two battle with cancer that was tragically lost.

Carl is a husband and father who has battled with cancer for the second time in 2 years and tragically lost his life March 23, 2012. First battle was with colon cancer which he beat. In November Carl was admitted to the hospital in Montana for not feeling well. He was later released with no answers. In January Carl went in for a check up on his colon cancer. At this appointment they discovered that he had developed stage 4 liver cancer and only had 6 months to live if he chose not to fight. Carl chose to fight this battle to get as much time as he could with his wife and 3 kids and was admitted to a hospital in Denver, Colorado for a liver resection on February 14, 2012 . After losing 70% of his liver and his gall bladder his body did not have any fight left. Carl's remaining liver never kicked in to start working again. His kidneys later failed due to the the stress they were under with trying to work without the liver. After being in the hospital for nearly 2 months Carl's body is shutting down and he will pass on at any point. His wife is the sole supporter of the family and has been by his side most of the 2 months spent in Denver unable to work. This fundraiser is to help off set the cost of this tragic situation as well as giving her a helping hand to start again.
