Around the 20th of December Chris seemed to have caught the flu, but after a few weeks the symptoms wouldnt go away so a trip to the doctor became a trip to the hospital, Chris was admitted to Grossmont ER on 1-24-19 suffering the effects
of Diabetic Ketoacidosis, basically being poisoned from within and often fatal.
Chris is in pain and has spent 5 days in ICU trying to kill the infections and acids, and is now in a 24 hour care facility continuing the fight with infections and open sores.
The financial burden is already astronomical, and treatment could continue another 8-10 weeks, or more and they have exhausted savings and need help to continue the treatment since their insurance is basically worthless in this situation, they need help fast.
Chris and her husband Brad are "Jamul Backhoe" they have been in this area all their lives, raised children here and been a part of the Jamul and East County communities, helping many with their various construction projects
Brad and Chris need all the help they can get, but dont want to ask, so I am asking, I should have started this weeks ago ....
anything will help.
The photo is the only one I could find and it is Chris riding at Campo.
