Chase Heaton is a local stick that has accomplished many great things in his 18 years of life. Many kids his age dream of fishing for a living, but Heaton walks-the-walk each and every time he hits the water. After two back-to-back State Junior Bass Federation Championships in 2009 and 2010, Heaton’s highest of highs have recently been overlapped by  a recent discovery  – Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Chase HeatonWithout knowing Heaton on a personal basis, many co-workers and customers from Wholesale Sports in Spokane Valley, Washington, have begun helping and supporting the Heaton family in any way possible. As a part-time employee at Wholesale Sports, our paths have not crossed much due to the necessity for quick medical treatments and tireless anquish, but the fishing community is a close-knit group of friends, family and acquaintances that understand the need to fire up a motor, race across the lake and set the hook.

In hopes of helping another angler, a mother and father’s son, and a girlfriend’s boyfriend, FHC Outdoors will be alongside Heaton’s family, friends and widespread supporters. As unfortunate as this event might be, a setback is just this; Heaton is already speaking of his next fishing trip, mind you the snow and freezing temperatures already witnessed in the Pacific Northwest.

Through the difficult journey, Heaton still has an unbelievable attitude towards beating Cancer with a rod and reel in hand. How’s that for perseverance?

    I am sorry to hear about Chase’s condition. I am writing because I know of something that I think could help get him back on his feet, but let me stress that this is NOT a sales pitch. If it sounds like one I am truely sorry. It’s called Kangen water and there is a lot of information about it. So PLEASE contact Kellia Jenkins: e-mail or Phone 509-217-0751, She will get him and his family information and the water as fast as she possibly can. Again PLEASE contact her.
