The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Sep 3, 2021

Chuck Stravin was diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma in 2015, and has been living with it ever since.

Chuck is a father of 4 girls.  Shortly after his diagnosis, he made it a personal goal to see all 4 daughters graduate high school.  With that no complete, he’s looking ahead to four college graduations (2 down there), followed by four engagements, weddings and grandchildren.

This is one of the most vulnerable and personal interviews that I’ve done since we started this podcast. 

One of the things that has stuck with me since speaking with Chuck is what he’s learned about – and what he wants to teach others – about resiliency.  

Since his diagnosis, Chuck has become a part of the family at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, where he receives his care.

He shares a lot about that too, which makes us especially proud to be partnering with them and the Jimmy Fund.

So if you want to be part of something special, go to and sign up for their walk, which will take place on October 3rd, around the globe.

Thanks to the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber Cancer Institute for the opportunity to be a part of their amazing work, and family. 

Thanks to Genentech for their support!

Big thanks to Chuck for sharing so much with us.

And of course, big thanks to all of you for joining us.

Every Mile Matters.
