Your Real Champion: Food, Folks, and Faith

Your Real Champion of the week was Chuck Montufar!

Chuck and his wife Joe are very thankful parents! When their daughter Cara was 12, she was diagnosed with cancer in her thigh. After extensive surgery and chemotherapy, Cara grew to become a healthy woman with a four-year-old son of her own.  Chuck and Joe have shown their gratitude by giving countless hours to “Make a Wish” and “Katie’s Krusaders“. They were also a force in establishing the Ronald McDonald House at Front and Erie to serve families of seriously ill children at St. Christopher’s Hospital.
