The Karen Chandler Trust

The Karen Chandler Trust is named for a local NC musician who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1999. Before her death, fellow musicians held a benefit to help Chandler meet her financial needs. The trust was established after Chandler’s death to help others in our community deal with the financial burden of living with cancer.

     “For example, if a person needs chemotherapy and they have to go out of town for treatment, the trust will help supplement the family so they can go with their family member. They fill a lot of gaps where families can fall through the cracks when insurance doesn’t pay for everything,”
