Friday night while at work, Chris had a seizure and was rushed quickly to the local hospital where a CT scan showed something on his brain. He was moved to the University of Utah where they conducted an MRI and angiogram revealing a ping pong ball sized growth on his brain.
Fortunately, the surgeon says the tumor is in a very operable location and in the next week or two, he will be scheduled for removal of it. It is a slow growing tumor, so the surgeon recommended a form of surgery that has a very good chance of being able to remove it in its entirety.
Through such a hard time, there have been a lot of tender mercies; however, his road to recovery is going to be long and difficult. Chris and Deidre will have medical bills along with many other expenses related, directly and indirectly, to the incident, surgery, and most importantly his recovery. Anything can help for things like meals, Uber rides, medical bills, etc.
Many people have asked Deidre how they could help. Without being able to get things directly to them, we wanted to provide an easy way for people to donate to help Chris and his family.
Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for a successful surgery and full recovery for Chris. And thank all of you for your love and charity, even if it’s as simple as a message to Chris, Deidre, and their kids.
