— A benefit bank account has been established for local residents Chad and LaCresha Hale at the First National Bank - Chickasha. Chad has been diagnosed with PRES, Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, and an additional syndrome called Todd's paresis.  With these diagnosis, it could take up to a year to recover and then, it is not known if he will fully recover.

A Chickasha High School 1989 alum, Chad is employed as a police officer in Alex and also serves as a corrections officer at the Grady County Criminal Justice Authority in Chickasha. He is also a Desert Shield/Storm Combat Veteran.

High school sweethearts, Chad and LaCresha are the parents of Kassy Hale-Carlin and husband Brandon Carlin, Brad Hale and Joshua Hale and wife Reva Ryans-Hale and grandparents of Levi, Hunter and Jeremy.

All funds donated to the Hales will be used to help with living and medical expense the family has and will be incurring. Donations may be made at any First National Bank branch.
