My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

 Chuck has recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has brought him back to Indianapolis from Useppa Island for treatment and to be with his family and many friends.

Please join me and share your thoughts with Chuck. He has accepted this challenge with courage and determination to see this through one day at a time.

 

 



Around Thanksgiving, Chuck Berry was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which has metasticized to his liver. Chuck and Paula have left Useppa Island and are living up in Indianapolis with Chuck's sister Katie McKinney.   He is under the care of IU Hospital in Indianapolis.

In an effort to make sure that everyone receives the exact information at the same time, we are using the Caring Bridge.  We will try our hardest to ensure that all information is sent out in a timely manner. 

Please feel free to leave messages on here for him/them and we will make sure that all messages get to them.
