My Story

Charlie was diagnosed on April 19, 2004 with a very aggressive form of pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. He endured chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, radiation and was cancer free in January of 2005. He unfortunately relapsed on his first day of 2nd grade in 2005. He lost his battle on September 19, 2006. He was the most courageous little boy and has taught many of us more than we could have ever taught him. He always wore a smile even though he endured so much pain. He never gave up his will to live. Unfortunately, neuroblastoma is too sneaky and aggressive and that is why it is so very important to rally and raise money in his memory. So, our team, Charlie's Angels, will be participating once again this year to continue to bring awareness in Charlie's memory as well as all the other children fighting this dreadful disease. Please help us find a cure!
