Help for Chris

My brother Chris was diagnosed with stage 3 Colorectal Cancer in the summer of 2017. He's been a real fighter. He has faced set back after set back with a smile on his face. Unfortunately he has been faced with another set back.  He went in for surgery on Tuesday to remove his colostomy bag but faced septic shock soon after, landing him back into a second major surgery to repair a leak internally.  He is currently in ICU at the Mayo in Rochester, MN and faces another surgery likely this week some time. He is only 32 years old and has 2 young children and a loving wife. The family has been through so much.  His wife Jenna has overcome her battle with non-hodgkins lymphoma in recent years and is now walking beside Chris as he battles for his life. 
Chris and Jenna are very private about finances, but I can only imagine what an ICU and multiple surgery bill from the Mayo will look like. My goal is to raise money for them so that money is one thing they won't have to think about. This is where I need your help! If you can spare a few dollars for my brother and his family it would be appreciated more than words can express. However, if you can't help financially, please pray! Pray for strength and healing for my brother and for courage to face whatever the future may hold! Thank you in advance.

Love,
Chris's Family
