Charlie Awad was a 4 time,13 year, colorectal cancer survivor, but it wasn't the cancer that took him from us, He was the most amazing husband, father, grandfather to 12, "brother", cousin and dear friend. If you knew him, he left an impact.
His love of hot rods and cars started early in life and his stories of races down the backroads of Nova Scotia were many. He had a dream after his 2nd recurrence, that he travelled Rt. 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica in his 1950 Dodge with 2 of his childhood buddies, stopping at sites along the way to advocate for screening. Sadly, he was never able to complete that trip.
He never tired of speaking to people at conferences and health fair urging them to listen to their bodies and go get screened.
