Battle for Blazo - Chris Blaszak
What 43 year old Chris Blaszak thought was an infected wisdom tooth turned out to be stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma of the mandible, a life threating form of cancer. After four surgeries totaling 40 hours, the transplant didn't take. Life from that point on was forever changed.
Loving family and friends are now rallying around Chris and his family to provide support in his long journey ahead and fight against this cancer.
100% of our campaign proceeds benefit an outstanding member of the Milwaukee, WI, community and his fight against cancer. Your generous donation will be used to help the family with related expenses.
A loving father and husband, 20 years dedicated service to the US Air Force 440th unit military police, retired Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom military hero, homicide detective and lieutenant of Milwaukee Police Department of 22 years, Chris Blaszak has been committed to the safety of our hometown community and its people. His exhausting efforts to keep our communities safe has allowed our children, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters to feel more secure knowing that people like Chris fight and win the battle for us every day. Now it's our turn to fight and win the battle for Chris.
Doctors are currently trying to get this infection treated so Chris can go home as soon as possible.
Chris and Bunny are both staying positive and strong. They have not been home for 10 days now, and the children are staying with family and friends.
If you would like to help, we have reopened the Take them a meal program ( mostly for the children).
This go fund me page is still going strong! Thank you for all of your generous donations! I'm confident we will get to our goal of $50k to assist the family in helping to pay for these long hospital stays and treatments.
We also have another fundraiser planned on November 9 th at The Whiskey Bar at 788 N Jackson at 3 pm. There will be food, drinks and raffle items. Stay and watch the Packers beat the Bears. Kids are welcome.
Chris will not be there, but he is so grateful for all of the love and support. It is truly amazing.
Please continue to visit the Battle for Blazo Facebook page for updates. Please continue your prayers and sharing your well wishes and pictures. Your support is keeping the family in high spirits!
Much love to all who have reached out in anyway.
A big SHOUT OUT to The Boogie Men
and Kelly's Bleachers!
Please watch below ( It's the last minute:) and See you Saturday!
Chris is a wonderful person. I have known him from more than 23 years since our days at MATC. He is one of the best detectives and officers I have had the pleasure of working with. He will always be in the thoughts and prayers of my family.
my prayers r with u, unfortunately i am unable to contribute as i also am battling cancer at this time and have no funds. keep the faith, god will get u through this.
I am so very sorry to hear about this battle Detective Blaszak is facing. He was one of the detectives that worked my daughters homicide case, Ashleigh Love, in the early stages of our own fight. I am sending up prayers for him and his family, as I know how hard it is to battle a war each day, my battle is in a different way than his, but a battle non the less. Keep fighting, keep your chin up, you have fought countless battles for other people, now they all are supporting you, helping you as you fight your own battle........................prayers
I sent a $100 donation to their home last week:) Love you Blaszak family!!
Sad to read this, seems like just yesterday, I saw him on the news for an MPD story. I know he will fight this and win. Us , Cyril's kids are a strong bunch!! Prayers for him and his family as well!!
