Who is Chase Warren? Chase was born on October 1, 2012 as what appeared to be a healthy baby boy but this joyous story for two proud parents quickly became a heartwrenching tragedy. Over the next ten months, the Warren family watched baby Chase get progressively more sick while no doctors could explain the cause of his symptoms. Chase Warren passed away on August 7, 2013 while surrounded by family members – two days later the Warren family received their son’s diagnosis which was the fatal and untreatable, Gaucher Type 2.
The Warren family has created the ChaseN’Tailz fishing tournament in memory of their son and to spread awareness and raise funds for rare diseases such as Gaucher Type 2 – all proceeds will be donated to the National Gaucher Foundation.
Support for the Warren’s tragic story has been overwhelming with local businesses sponsoring the event. Hoo-Rag cannot express how honored we are to donate Hoo-Rags for the captain’s bags and the prizes/raffles that will be held during the fishing tournament.
