On Thurdsay, March 21, our beloved friend, caring teacher, and adoring dad Chase, was diagnosed with a walnut sized mass in his right frontal lobe. A later MRI showed that this mass in his brain was cancerous and it needed to be removed as soon as possible. Chase had been experiencing nausea, vomiting, and headaches for days/weeks intermittently since Thanksgiving. Thinking it was a gastro-intestinal illness, he was relieved as his symptoms subsided. However, in January this continued and again in March. Multiple doctors could not find any GI illness to explain his symptoms. When these symptoms were accompanied by a migraine, his wife Lindsay took him to the ER where they did a CT scan and found the tumor.
Chase underwent surgery March 25 where doctors miraculously removed the entire tumor. While we are all relieved, Chase and Lindsay received the sad news that his tumor is a stage 4 Glioblastoma. The Curry’s have a long battle ahead of them, trying to fight the aggressive cancer that will require chemotherapy and radiation.
Both Lindsay and Chase are teachers. Unfortunately, Chase has used up all of his sick days. Lindsay has also used all of her sick days because of her maternity leave the previous year. Your love, support, and prayers are greatly appreciated and welcomed as Lindsay and Chase move forward in this difficult journey. Please consider donating to help Chase, Lindsay, and their 1 year baby Kayla. Chase and Lindsay are such warm, positive, and giving teachers and friends. Please help them if you can!
