Our good friend Ian, known to many of you as Charlie Gill, and his family have been devastated by a recurrence of the colon cancer he so bravely fought and overcame 5 years ago. As some of you know this past May they got the bad news the cancer had returned with a vengeance...not only has the original cancer now spread to his kidney, liver and lymphnodes, but he also has a melanoma in his lung. Ian(Charlie) was undergoing heavy duty chemo treatments every other week when a bout of double pneumonia put him in the hospital, where with the exception of 2 days at home, he has been now for almost 2 months.

He was on life support for almost 2 weeks for lung/heart complications and on dialysis for resulting failure of his one good kidney. Miraculously, he woke up and removed his own breathing tube, and was able to move out of ICU.

He is still battling other complications, and at this point his ability to be able to go home is undetermined. Obviously, he has been unable to work to support his family and combat medical bills. He will have a long difficult road ahead of him, but he is a fighter, and has an incredible heart and amazing spirit and attitude. As does his wife Michelle, who has been juggling caring for Charlie and working full time. Michelle is now taking leave of absence from work to be with Charlie at the hospital.

Anything you can give to help Ian/Charlie, Michelle and their son Trevor in this courageous fight will go a long way in easing this family's burden on many levels. No amount is too small!

Please feel free to share this via social media or email with anyone else you believe might also wish to help.

So many prayers and messages, and so much love and positive energy have helped bring them this far, please keep them coming.

Thank you for making a difference in this family's life!
