This is A Benefit for Charles K Huwig aka Skar!

Charley has been a long standing and highly respected drummer and member of the local music community. He has plaid in and supported many local bands since he started playing drums at the age of twelve.  Skar Mine, Dismal, The Mandrake, Mourned by Flies, Terrathrone, and Arcanium just to name a few.

A few months ago Charley was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis more commonly known as MS and had to take a hiatus from his position as drummer with his current band Arcanium.

Multiple Sclerosis is an inflammatory disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms. MS takes several forms, with new symptoms either occurring in isolated attacks (relapsing forms) or building up over time (progressive forms). Between attacks, symptoms may disappear completely; however, permanent neurological problems often occur, especially as the disease advances.

(Taken from wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_sclerosis)

While the cause of MS is unclear and there is no known cure, there are many new and experimental treatments for the disease many of which can be highly expensive, unguaranteed, and not covered by insurance.

Besides the expense of treatment there is a huge impact that this disease has on the whole family. Charley now has to walk with a cane most of the time and can no longer do household repairs on their new home or maintain any form of regular employment. Simple tasks like picking his five year old son up from school have become increasingly more difficult and his wife Heather (one of two founding members of the Metal Maidens) has become the full time income for the household.

As doctor visits become more frequent and Charley’s condition fluctuates, the family has become more and more behind financially. This coupled with the family vehicle constantly breaking down has made the recent diagnosis even more stressful and hard to deal with emotionally and mentally as hopes of a regular paycheck dwindle the family struggles to keep the bills paid and the car running until the next month and next Doctors appointment. Hoping that it will still be covered by insurance.
