Chad's life was filled with faith and a love of learning about the world around him. He enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. His mother taught him to speak French at a young age. His life ended far too soon when he was diagnosed with a glioblastoma, a rare and fatal form of brain cancer. In the months following his diagnosis, we found ourselves surrounded by a supportive community of friends and families who came together to offer prayers, food and support. After a 10 month battle, Chad passed away in May of 2007. He was 12. We established this fund to help keep Chad's memory alive.
