Tom Chase Needs Your Help
August 8, 2008 at 5:27 AM (PT)
TOM VILLAGRANA has often used the air name TOM CHASE in his 30 plus years in radio. He began his career in CANON CITY and PUEBLO CO, and moved on to large markets like DENVER and TAMPA BAY. TOM was living close to home in SOUTHERN COLORADO when he was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. The last few months have meant brain surgery and, to date, seven different hospitalizations. On top of all of that TOM had very limited medical coverage.
TOM is currently suffering from "aphasia" which quite possibly could be one of the most frustrating conditions for a person who has made a life out of talking for a living. (Learn about the condition here.)
