Chris Needs a New Hip!

If you have ever been to Waters Bonnell's Coastal Restaurant and ever had oysters at the bar, then you have likely met the bartender Chris Teafatiller.   For over four years, Chris has suffered from a serious hip problem, causing him serious pain, struggle walking, and problems being there for his young growing boys.  Chris would never complain or ask for help but instead would offer to help others as he suffers in silence.    Chris needs surgery so he can live a health life and be able to play with his young beautiful boys.  So his friends have decided to start this page in order to help him raise money to cover his $6,000 insurance deductible and lost wages while he recuperates.  A very generous anonymous donor has agreed to match anything we raise so please donate today!  

Any help is appreciated, even prayers that we raise enough money to help Chris and his beautiful wife and sons.
