Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.

On November 7th Charlie was critically wounded after being shot  while acting as the superhero we all know and love him to be. Charlie has injuries to various internal organs and has a long road ahead. He is now fighting for his life in critical but stable condition. The Cangelosi family thanks you all for your thoughts and prayers and asks that you continue to pray. 

Latest Journal Update


 Busy week for Charlie... LSU awards banquet and meeting Michael Gaudet and his family as he was heading to Lafayette with his family after his deployment from Iraq. What an awesome family. Will send pics of everything when I get Katie to stop making baked goods!
I have a big favor to ask y'all tonight. One of my very dear friend's dad is fighting for his life after a fall down some stairs. He is in intensive care in Monroe and Melanie (Patrick) has been trying to be with her dad and her family in baton rouge during this crazy time of the year. She was such a source of strength for me when Charlie was so sick. Prayer is awesome, especially y'alls, that if anyone can save him...y'all can!
Thanks again for all of your love and support. Charlie is doing great and still doesn't understand the attention.
Have a Merry Christmas!
Carolyn, David and Charlie
