Chase is 29 years old. He is an amazing boyfriend, a loving son, a goofball brother, a super hero uncle, and a wonderful friend to many. He was recently diagnosed with DSRCT. Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors.
DSRCT is a rare terminal type of cancer, affecting about only 20 people in the United States each year. It requires a harsher chemo treatment than most cancers, and it can be very aggressive. It can also grow resistant to treatment. The survival rate is not very assuring with a 3-year survival rate at 55%...

But we believe Chase can beat this with the proper treatments, support from his loved ones, and making him as comfortable as possible through this process.
This diagnosis will keep him out of work. Being self employed, he doesn't qualify for unemployment. He won't be able to make any money for the duration of this battle. His treatments will take a minimum of 14 weeks, and that's just for chemotherapy.
We are reaching out to the kindness of others, for financial support to help him keep his apartment, afford food and monthly bills, and to purchase any other supplies he may need along the way. This battle will be very tough on him, and having some peace of mind financially will be a huge burden off of his shoulders.
Please take the time to look through some pictures of him, sharing his well-known bright smile with his family and friends. A smile we all want to keep seeing for many more years. We love you chase. <3
