Salvas Strong!

Let me start off saying thank you to everyone reading this right now! My name is Chuck and I have been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. This cancer has changed my life as well as my families life drastically.  I am retired from the  State of Maryland after giving 26 years in law enforcement.  I have a wife and 6 beautiful kids who depend on me and have stood by my side during this hard time in my life.  I have gone through my 3rd surgery recently and I am told that I have 2 months to live. Although my family and I always knew my cancer was terminal and  that they know very little about how to treat my brain cancer it was still the worst news my family could hear at this time.  I would like to take a trip with my family if I am strong  enough, on the first of the year. My youngest daughter is 6 and I want to make as many memories with her as possible.
 Any money that is left over will go towards my burial and medical bills to help my wife with that burden.  We all go though life not knowing what tomorrow will bring. With that said, hug your loved ones longer and always let them know you love them.  You can't plan for tomorrow to make things right or wish  you  had done more.  Treasure each moment!
