In 2014, Chad was diagnosed with a rare inoperable form of brain cancer and the community rallied around the cause, coming up with the #ChadTough hashtag. That a young man could have such a profound impact and bring so many together during a tough time is incredible.
The last two weeks, Michigan has wore helmets with #ChadTough written on the back. Over the weekend, rivals Michigan State and Ohio State joined the cause wore helmet decals to honor Chad.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Carr family and the Michigan community in this difficult time.
