Chris' Colon Cancer Fight

Chris is a 39 year old father of two an 11 year old boy who has cerebral palsy  and a 8 year old little  girl he is also a loving husband, brother and friend. Always willing to help when he is needed day or night.

Chris was diagnosed in August 2012 with Stage 4 colon cancer after being sick for over a year with stomach issues that were always said to be something else. He became very sick one weekend and was rushed to the ER were then after a scan his cancer was found. Sadly by this time his cancer had spread to his liver, lungs, abdomen and recently to his kidney.  He has been doing Chemo only to extened his life so that he may be here with me and his kids longer. We aren't sure how long he has and to be honest are scared to ask, we are just living day by day.  As of August 2015 Chris's tumors in his lungs are now "actively" growing and he now has a new tumor.

We know anything is possible and he could live for years and we both pray that is the case.  Sadly the doctor doesn't see that happeneing for Chris and we are left to try and get some things in order. 

Living on a fixed income since Chris is unable to work and me being his caregiver as well as having to take care of our son who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy we just can't save any money. He doesn't have life insurance and we are left to pay the funeral bill out of pocket.  Him and I went last week and he planned out just how he would want things and we were estimated a bill for $6,150. 

Please if you can donate even $1 it would be greatly appreciated. Our family is forever grateful to you. All money will go directly to his funeral bill and if any is left it will go in a fund for his two kids Dakota & Daytona. 

Thank you so much for all your prayers, love, donations and support. God Bless You!
