Chris' Fight

Hi I'm Chris, a 42 year old father of two beautiful kids, and a proud veteran of the United Stated Army.  I have had a pretty rough go at life recently and I'm hoping that somehow a miracle can happen.
You see it all started about a year and a half ago when my wife of 10 years left me and destroyed our family so she could start a relationship with our children’s babysitter. She moved her into the house I used my VA loan to buy four months after I got a vasectemy, so my wife wouldn't have to suffer the side effects of birth control, and then pushed me out. Shortly after that, I rolled my vehicle over on the entrance to the interstate totaling it out and leaving my left arm immobile for about three months.  I was fired from my job at a military academy for being "too military” and helping too much. I had the VA cancel my educational benefits on me because I was employed at the academy. Then I got cancer!  It came on quietly and unexpectedly. I chipped a tooth and that rubbed an ulcer into my tounge.  That ulcer became cancerous as three months later I was diagnosed with stage 4 carcinoma.  The cancer was on the left side of my tounge and had spread to the lymph nodes in my neck. Surgery to remove the tumors was the only option. I lost over a third of my cancer riddled tongue, and both lymph nodes on the side of my neck.  I have been left with a terrible speech impediment and a horrific scar on my neck. While the Dr. was removing the cancerous lymph node, it exploded and spilled everywhere into my exposed neck.  I have to start chemotherapy and radiation immediately to kill any cancer still in my body.
I also need to fix my teeth, as I cannot do the therapies without my teeth being repaired. The Veterans Administration is willing to pull all my teeth for me, but at my age I need my teeth to eat, so I'm literally begging for any help that I can get to save my teeth and possibly my life. If you could please donate anything to me it would be greatly appreciated thank you.
