Now, at 54 years of age, Chris has been diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma and he is set to begin treatment on March 27, 2018. Chris’ treatment will take place at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, and will consist of daily radiation treatment (Monday – Friday) for 33 days, supplemented by chemotherapy. This means extensive daily travel to and from the hospital; a round trip of almost 2.5 hours. Chris’ expected recovery time is 4-6 months after treatment ends. He has been off work since January 2018 and isn’t expected to be able to work again until October-December 2018. He will financially be going from having employment income coming in from two jobs, to being unable to work at all… for what could be up to an entire year.
Needless to say, this has caused a great deal of stress and hardship for Chris and his family. To me, it doesn’t seem right that someone fighting for their life should also have to fight to ensure their bills are paid. Chris is too proud to ask anybody for financial help, and I ain’t got any money to give him, so I’m writing today to ask for your help on his behalf.
