Jack and Luellen Charneski’s Story:
Believing in Modern Medicine
Jack Charneski knows the value of good health. His wife, Luellen, has arthritis in her hands. And Jack’s own arthritis grew so painful and debilitating that he had a hip replacement in 2015. “It saved me a lot of pain,” says the 79-year-old of his surgery. “Now I can walk three or four miles.”
The Charneskis also know the value of having good medical care. The two University of Washington graduates were delighted when UW Neighborhood Clinics teamed up with Capital Medical Center to provide additional medical care in the Olympia, Wash., area. “When you get older,” notes Jack, “you use medical facilities more.”
This appreciation for modern medicine inspired the Charneskis to make a gift through their IRA: part of it supports the UW Neighborhood Olympia Clinic: the rest is funding research into arthritis.
“I benefit from medical research,” says Jack. “And I think it’s important to do financial and estate planning. It’s one way to do really good things.”
