Dear Craig, I have started a prayer wheel for you through Facebook. The power of prayer is great especially in numbers. I graduated with your Mom and Dad at OA. I heard from another classmate about you and wanted you to know there are angels working in your behalf. God Bless You!

I went to the Charity Hockey Game @ MCC Sunday. Had A great time. Looked like it had an amazing turn out. I wish the autographs could have been longer but I still got most of the ones I really wanted. May I suggest trying to get another game but at like HSBC ARENA or BLUE CROSS ARENA then it could hold more fans and have a bigger turnout. Good Luck

Hans Prok

Dear Craig, although we don't know each other,I do have some insight in what you are going through. This June my wife Amy was also diagnosed with inoperable stomach cancer. She will be receiving her third round of chemotherapy next week at Pluta . We plan on beating this as we know you do. Contact us if you would like to share information. God bless

Bill Yox

Craig I cannot picture you doing anything less than meeting...and beating this head on, just like you have always done. If you need anything, or to get the kids out just let me know. Thanks for all youve done over the years for so many of us.

There is nothing more I would like to see than for you to fight through this, be a survivor and get back on the ice. The dream we have as kids to lace up the skates never dies even when life is at it's lowest point and I truly believe that so never forget it. My prayers and wishes are with you and your family.

Tom Pizzo

Mr Charron, As a fellow hockey player, I have truly been inspired by your will and motivation to battle something that doesn't give you much hope. Your a man who has chased your dream to play hockey and every young hockey player can take a lesson from your heart and desire to play the game.
