Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.


The Frank Family is in need of love and support as they start the long journey against cancer with their 10-year old daughter, Charlotte. Charlotte had a fall during soccer in mid-October which led to increasing back pain in the coming days and weeks, sleepless nights, x-rays and other routine testing.

After another sleepless night and no answers to what was causing Charlotte’s increased pain, her doctor recommended they head to Lurie’s Children's Hospital in Chicago for more testing on November 13, 2022. After an MRI in the ER that night, a large mass was detected near Charlotte’s spine. More tests the following days confirmed that the mass was a rare type cancer that affects mostly children.

Charlotte has a quiet strength and a quick-witted sense of humor. Along with her gorgeous wide smile and determination in everything she does, we know that she will overcome this diagnosis with the help and love from family, friends and the Libertyville community.

We ask that you pray for healing and strength over Charlotte. Pray for her siblings, Violet and George. Pray for her parents, Michelle and Eric, that they may find the strength and courage during this difficult journey. Pray for the family and friends who love Charlotte so dearly. Pray for the team of doctors and nurses who are working tirelessly to get Charlotte through this.

Thank you in advance for your love and messages of support for the Frank family. They are grateful and humbled by the outreach and love shown to them already. 💜
