Teammates and supporters far and wide, many of you know the story of Chuck Christian. He has been battling inoperable stage four cancer. Doctors diagnosed him over four years ago and gave him three years left of life. He continues to defy the odds and with prayer and alternative medicine he has prevailed.
Now, with this gift of time on our hands, a miracle has presented itself in the form of a one Dr. Gary Onik, MD. Dr. Onik is a 1974 Harvard grad who has been revolutionizing cancer treatments and curing cancer where there had been no hope. He is a survivor of his very own stage four prostate cancer at the hands of the treatment he himself created.
Chuck's first procedure was a success! With the $66,781 we were able to raise with all of your generosity and help, Dr. Onik shared the first round of post-op lab results, and it revealed that the cancer has stopped eating Chuck's bones. The CANCER HAS STOPPED. Chuck's first question to the doctor: When can I play basketball again?
Dr. Onik believes that at most, two more procedures will be necessary to remove all residual cells that are hiding in Chuck's bones and he will be able to declare him CANCER FREE and can hit the court shortly thereafter.
We have raised the goal amount for our campaign so we can take this battle across the finish line and witness the miracle that God has allowed us to participate in.
Bless all everyone who has shown the compassion and generosity and kindness to help make this possible.
