If you know Chris you know he puts his heart and soul into everything he does. He is so gifted and his work as a fashion designer is gaining international momentum. Recently he's been traveling quite often as his career spirals upwards and outwards.
While Chris was on a new consulting project in Italy this past week - he slipped and fell, during the final leg of the trip and shattered several bones in his face and nose. He dislocated his jaw and was knocked unconscious on impact. Soon after, he was discovered lying face down in his room and was immediately taken to the emergency room. He has been hospitalized for over a week, with the first of several surgeries happening today. His jaw needs to be wired shut for 40 days and will have minor reconstructive procedures done. All of this, abroad - (with only his brother Willy beside him offering support during these initial surgery procedures.)
While we are all so grateful that he is okay - he is dealing with a huge amount of pain - isolated halfway across the world.
We are anticipating steep medical expenses (before today's first surgery, the hospital bill was already at 8k)
Chris needs all the love and support we have to offer right now. Please chip in to ease this rough transition and lets get him home safe.
Prayers surround Chris and his family as they go through a very scary time - but we are so fortunate that he's going to be okay!!
