Christopher Younger is a 14-year-old boy with a rare heart defect called Truncus Arteriosus. He is currently an amputee and is a very strong and resilient young man as he has gone through many surgeries and hospital stays in his life. The funds will help with hotel and transportation costs for his family as Chris' health journey is constantly changing.
Three days into his freshman year, Chris underwent septic shock, and all of his organs and blood flow shut down. He was quickly put onto life support ECMO and miraculously fought through. Chris came out of the ECMO with kidney failure, liver failure, and heart failure and was then put on three months of dialysis. Due to the lack of blood flow on ECMO, his limbs took a very hard hit, and he became an amputee in October with amputations above his knee, below his knee, right-hand, part of his right arm, and on multiple digits of his left hand. During the months of October and November, he underwent 19 OR trips. In December, he got an infection that pushed surgery dates back. In January, he got to do cadaver grafts to his legs. He will be transferred to Shinners Children hospital to finish his recovery soon.
Chris' goal is to one day have prosthetics and be running, swimming, playing music, and playing video games again. Please help us raise money to help his family through this tough time, 100% of the proceeds will be going to his family.
