Fighting Cancer is a Battle !!!

Charlie is a loving husband, father, stepdad, and popo whom we love very much.  He is a great person inside and out and would give you the shirt off his back if he needed to.  Charlie has been battling colon cancer since 2008.  After being diagnosed with the colon cancer stage 3, his colon was removed and is now having to use a colostomy bag for life.  He began with radiation treatments for 5 weeks then on to chemotherapy for 2 months.  He did well afterwards for a few years then started complaining of headaches.  Our mom takes him to the emergency in 2012 to find out the the colon cancer had metastasized to the brain causing a brain tumor in the frontal lobe area.  It was operable, so he had the tumor removed in 2013 and began 8 weeks of radiation and then chemotherapy for 5 weeks.   Throughout all this Charlie continued with his doctor visits and then came to find out in July 2014, they found 2 lymph nodes with black specs in the lungs, fluid in the brain developed and had to start chemotherapy again.   This round of chemo lasted 3 months.   Time goes by and August 2014 comes around with pepper specs developing in his stomach and he had to endure another round of chemotherapy and has been fighting and fighting ever since.  His last dosage of chemotherapy was on December 24, 2014.  He recently went into the hospital again and the doctors have given us the news that there is nothing else they can do for my step dad other than make him comfortable.  He has bleeding in the brain and the cancer is spreading throughout his body.  He needs 24 hour care and it's costing a great amount that the family can not afford, so this fundraiser has been put together to help the family.  Throughout all of the pain and suffering Charlie has gone through he keeps his faith in God and stays optimistic and strong for our mom.  So any help would be a blessing.  May God Bless you and please keep our family in prayer.
