Chad Carr is a precocious, beautiful and smart 4 year old boy, not to mention, TOUGH. On September 23rd he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in his brain stem called Diffuse intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG. This type of cancer affects only 300 children a year in the United States. A cure remains unknown at this time. Chad is currently undergoing radiation as well as a clinical trial with an experimental drug. The family is asking for prayers from everyone but they are also facing the realization that there may be additional costs associated with battling this terrible illness. They want to be able to try every option available for their beautiful boy. Please join with us in praying for a miracle and also donating to help Chad in his battle against DIPG.The funds raised will be used to help Chad with treatments that are not covered by insurance as well as to assist with any unforeseen costs that the family runs up against during this battle. Thank you for your generosity, faith, love and hope. #ChadTough
