Over the past year my brother Chris has been in and out of the hospitals with unanswered questions! He recently went to the Mayo Clinic with the support of his wife Lisa Gallegos, after several hours and days they finally came to the resolution of determining the evil that was causing my brother to be so ill. The doctors have confirmed that he has been diagnosed with Leukemia! This was something we were not prepared for. My brother is an amazing man, husband, son, brother, and uncle, never imagined such an awesome person would have to go through this. He has been out of a job for about 6 months due to the amount of trips to the hospital and going home with no diagnosis, this as you can imagine, has taken a toll on their finances and faith. My sister in law is taking time away from her job to be the rock for my brother. We are asking for prayers and donations for the medical bills and the finances of being in another state, away from their home, for my brother's medical treatments. We need all the support we can get no matter how big or small anything will help! Thank you all for taking the time to read this! If you are not able to donate just the amount of praying is amazing!

Family and Friends.

I am headed up to Iowa to pheasant hunt with a group called Second Shot. They create adaptive hunting experiences for those with disability and illness. I get to enjoy a day in the field with the staff, including rescued hunting dogs that they have trained. I also get to share my story as they create a small show from the experience.

With this opportunity and platform, I am trying to raise $500 to benefit Leukemia Research on this hunt. Please help me in contributing to my cause. I am scheduled to go with Second Shot February 28th. So, let's try to hit this goal together so I can go on this hunt and show Leukemia who is boss!

Gifts can be made through there website using Paypal, Second Shot, by clicking the Donate button on my campaign. Gifts can also be made by check to Second Shot and given to me or sent to the address on their site. The donation meter is already ticking on the website. Let's fill it up soon. Thank you guys for all the love and support throughout this journey.

Best,

Chris Gallegos
