Chris's trailer burnt down in a fire on 12-3-13. He lost everything including his beloved dog. All he has is the clothes on his back. Many may know Chris from being the cotton candy man at the Cajundome or Superdome in Louisiana. He is now disabled and can no longer work at his job he loved so much. He has diabetes and had to have part of his leg removed. So, having this job all his life he has no insurance or benefits to help him survive. He needs all the help we can give him because he will be trying to rebuild his life all over again. Chris still has a awesome spirit he says " Katrina took everything from me and I rebuilt and I will do it again." Please everyone help this great person out. If you would like to donate food or clothing his sizes are shirts 2x and pants size 38. Thanks and God Bless....
He also needs any life essentials. Any items other than clothes or large items contact me directly @ christielynn1@hotmail.com to make arrangements... Townsquare media @ 1749 Bertrand Lafayette, la. 70506 will accept clothes from 8:30 to 4:30 M-F.

Chris profoundly impacted our family when he showed up at my husband's funeral service with candied apple in hand. Said he had seen of Errol's passing and wanted to share his condolences. Took a cab to get to the church. Brought a moment of joy into a very difficult day. Will be donating items and cash for sure.

What a great guy! I met Chris back when Louisiana Icegators Hockey came to Lafayette in the late 90's. He would come visit us at Rays Sports Bar and Grill. Chris would drive in for every home game (about 35), work his butt off, then drive back home to New Orleans. He was always in good spirits. I am very sorry to hear of your hardship my friend. I have a washer and dryer I hope you can use.Ray

Not sure if he is looking or not, but when it comes time, I can most definitely get him set up with a new puppy. I know my dogs mean the world to me... Please just contact me on Facebook if possible.

Just a note to say thank you to everyone helping out my big brother. He's always been a giver and put himself last for the sake of others, so this outpouring of love and help for him is appreciated by his whole family. THANK YOU AND BLESSED BE YOUR HOLIDAY AND NEW YEAR!

The staff at Pixus Digital Printing decided to challenge me to a match for every dollar raised. They raised $289. So we are happy to make this contribution on behalf of the 25 employees of Pixus Digital Printing for all the smiles you gave us over the years. I can't even see cotton candy without thinking it is spelled. "Hey Hey" Cotton Candy! And the "Yum Yum come get you Sum!" Well that's just plain awesome! Hope this contribution helps! Keep the Faith!
