Put a "Charge" in Dave Near's Life

Dave was recently blind-sided by being diagnosed with an astrocytoma categorized as a grade-4 glioblastoma.  This is an aggressive form of brain cancer for which immediate surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy are indicated.

Dave is self-employed and is no longer able to continue his business as an electrical inspection provider. 

He is currently convalescing from the surgery to remove the tumor and has begun his chemotherapy and  radiation treatments.  As a result he has urgent need to assist with related mounting medical expenses.

For those who know Dave, he has ALWAYS been one of those amazing human beings who would give the shirt off his back for others.  In addition to any financial help you may be able to assist him with in his time of need, please send a note of well wishing and your prayers for his recovery.  

God Bless and Thank You All
