Stage 4 Prostate and Breast Cancer Thrivers Chuck and Hannah!! 😁🍎


0:50 Chuck's story!! In 2015 Chuck was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer and told he had 3 months to live. He wrote a book to include all the details. Here's some of his story. 😊

Aspirin stopped working, was uncomfortable with pain. Went to the ER in Pheonix, they ran scans and x-rays. X-ray showed that he had 2 fractured vertebrae in his back. At 5am the ER doctor said it was all cancer-related. Wondered if it was a short journey. Specialists biopsied bone marrow and lymph nodes. His doctor said "I don't know how you're walking around. I've never seen anything like this before in my life. The scans and biopsies came back; first of all the spread was so bad that we couldn't find where the cancer originated from because there's so much of it in your body. It got in your bone marrow and your bone marrow carried it all over your body and you have cancer in 90% of the bones in your body. You're at stage 4 and you have about 3 months to live; go home and spend time with your family." It was an emotional, head spinning, confusing nightmare. Decided to go back to Ohio to hang out with his family. Gave away everything he owned.

How is important is all of this material stuff that I grinded and worked my tail off - worked weekends and didn't see my family - and this material stuff means absolutely nothing.

5:00 "Something popped and I hit the floor… It felt like somebody was stabbing me in the back with a knife and running it up to my head and back any time I budged." Including taking a breath. Was scared to move. Waited 12-15 minutes for the paramedics to arrive. His spine had collapsed. Went to John C. Lincoln Hospital and took more scans and compared them to the previous scans. Hospice nurses had just been at his house... Had just turned 50 years old. Was down 35-40 pounds. Other things started shutting down in his body and he was very very very pale.

We want to do a couple surgeries tomorrow and start chemo the next day.

Went into 2 surgeries back to back.

*7:30 Got a weird, frigid bone chill, then a miraculous encounter... The spinal collapse caused him to need liquid morphine, was in terrible, excruciating pain. But in that moment he began to heal. He got up the next morning with his pain gone and since then has never touched a pain medication!!

*10:45 How it changed his spiritual life and how he found his purpose.

"You've wasted so much time in your life. But you're going to get it back little by little. And I want you to focus on what you're truly passionate about." He was in the hospital for 10 days and left knowing that he wasn't going to die of cancer.

Went through 6 months of chemo and had to work on healing his body. Started helping people all over the place and couldn't shut up about what
