Chad was diagnosed with Fibrosis Sarcoma Cancer in his leg when he was child which resulted in the amputation of his left leg when he was just turning 3 years old.
Chad has struggled all his life with the prosthetics that insurance would cover, which to say are not very good and very limited with respects to mobility.
Due to his limited mobility, Chad has struggled with his weight his entire adult life. He has now lost over 200 lbs and going strong. He will have reached his goal weight by mid-April this year and he is in desperate need of a new prosthetic leg due to his weight loss. We are trying to raise money for Chad to get a prosthetic leg that will provide him a better quality of life and mobility. As you can imagine, quality prosthetics are very expensive and well out of financial reach for the average family.
Please help us raise the money to get Chad this new prosthetic leg and provide him a new lease on life and the mobility he has always dreamed of.
