Charmaine loss her mother Glenda Walker from a heart attack that she suffered in October 2019. The loss was very hard on Charmaine and her father.

But, her father was able to be there for her wedding and the birth of his granddaughter baby Nola.

On June 2, 2021 Charmaine posted the heartbreaking news of her father being diagnosed with stage 4 esophagus cancer.

In the post, she stated that the chemo treatments had caused him to have seizures and memory loss, and the doctors had no clue why.

She asked if anyone else was familiar with this type of reaction from chemo to try to gain insight on what was causing it and how to treat it.
