Charles "Charlie" Grant embraced a positive approach to life and to fighting disease.  

Wanting to share the strength he discovered through his own experience, Charlie created The Charles Grant Charitable Foundation to inspire and empower others. He established this charitable foundation before he passed away in 2013 to benefit organizations that reflect his "Live to Thrive" vision.

Early in his journey with cancer, Charlie decided that he wanted to do something to give back and arm people with similar information and resources to help them in their own journeys. Whether you are dealing with an illness or life challenge, or seeking hope, inspiration or empowerment, join our community. We hope to inspire and empower all to "Live to Thrive" as Charlie did through his embrace of a WHOLE-istic approach to living.
