My brother (actually cousin, but way more like a brother) was diagnosed with testicular cancer on June 29, 2016. Testicular cancer is typically treated easily, but not for Chris. For Chris it has been a constant, constant battle! He was supposed to have 1 round of Chemo, yes 1 and be cured and cancer free by Halloween of 2016. Here we are a year later and he is still fighting, fighting harder than he has ever had to fight, and starting his 3rd round of chemo. We are praying that 3rd time is a charm.
Chris is native to St. Charles, MO but the hospitals here have had to send him to IU Health University in Indianapolis, IN. He left for treatment on 9/24, over the past year he has done everything possible to keep up with finances and continue to provide for his family, because that is the kind of man he is, a fighter and a provider.
Anyway, through this his wife lost her job, she was the insurance provider; they have found supplemental insurance, but not nearly as good. Chris was also recently laid off, once he is better he should be able to return to work, but at this point we don't know when that will be. His wife is currently working at a daycare to try to make ends meet while he is away but they could really use some help.
