CHAD CARR 2010 - 2015
Chad Carr was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor on Sept 23rd, 2014. he and his parents Tammi & Jason Carr, worked hard to raise awareness together prior to his passing in late 2015. His foundation continues to grow and support pediatric cancer research.
This is Chad - The ChadTough Foundation was started by the Carr Family in honor of their son Chad and his ongoing battle with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). The ChadTough Foundation supports pediatric brain tumor research and studies nationwide. They are rallying to cure pediatric brain tumors and your jeans can play a part!
DIPG presents a great challenge, it is an extremely difficult and complex disease. We believe a cure will come from talented, passionate people working collaboratively. It will come from “Thinking outside the Box” and taking some risks. It will come from small breakthroughs happening in many different areas of medicine. The ChadTough Foundation is committed to funding this work.
Visit the ChadTough.org website to learn more about their goals and objectives.
