Faced with many challenges, the Hooker family, are receiving outside support from the community through the efforts of family members, friends and Chris Humphrey’s Insurance Agency, to help with medical expenses.

Chase is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC.
