Chris Kipphut Treatment Support

We had the very good fortune to meet Chris Kipphut in the summer of 2016.   We have been so lucky to get to work side by side with him and appreciate first hand his incredible intellect, depth of knowledge, his wit and sense of humor, as well as how much he cares about all of the people in his life.   Back in the late fall, Chris found out that he has a very rare form of lymphoma. However,  it has now become clear it is even more rare than initially suspected. There have been fewer than 50 cases world-wide and Chris is an outlier to even those cases. There are many reasons to be optimistic but this is an aggressive cancer and getting his treatment right is critical to him beating it.

Unfortunately, unlike more common cancers, there is no clear or defined treatment protocol. Chris and his family have sought out opinions from specialists at M.D. Anderson, Stanford, and Northwestern in addition to what Duke has already provided. His treatment will be intense.

Chris will need to be away from home at MD Anderson for approximately six months starting in early April 2018 and with the treatments,  his immune system is degraded.   We are looking to get Chris financial support for a corporate apartment as well as secure private air transport to and from Houston for him and immediate family that may travel with him to reduce his exposure to germs. 

We are looking to raise at a minimum $100,000 to help offset these expenses.  Any support you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
