A well-known local conductor, Chuck Schneider, and his wife Rayna, are both suffering from illnesses that are causing their health to quickly deteriorate.
Chuck suffers from idiopathic pulmonary disease, which affects lung function, and Rayna was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, also known as ALS.
The couple’s children have reached out to the community for support, setting up a GoFundMe in an effort to help their parents with the rising medical costs.
Paul Baker and Megan Schneider-Ajakh stopped by NewsTalk to share their parents' story.
As of March 10, the GoFundMe raised more than $38,000.
