Christian Ghantous

Christian Ghantous is deeply loved by everyone who knows him - he has had an incredible impact on people’s lives from the moment they meet him with his positive energy, calming presence, and never ending love. Christian is an amazing father, loving husband, and supporting friend who has had a life spent creating beautiful art. He has always been the rock of the family by both supporting and continuing to put family first.

Currently, Christian is aggressively battling stage 4 brain cancer also known as glioblastoma. He was first diagnosed back in 2014 when he got into a minor car accident that changed his and his family’s life forever. 5 years later, the Ghantous family is still continuing the strenuous battle against cancer.

His family knew it was time to become his rock. Valli - wife, mother, and real-life superwoman, has kept a positive outlook through it all and stays strong no matter what has come her way. Their absolutely inspiring children, our close childhood friends, are continually supporting their parents. Christian was an amazing artist who had a business that he had built from the ground up. Due to the harsh reality of his sickness he had to close the business. Valli, Steffen and Alex stand strong by his side at all hours of the day. Both children work extremely hard to stay positive for their family. They are the most resilient and positive people we know - only in their early-to-mid twenties working extremely hard and continuing to do anything they can while never complaining. The limitless love this family shares is unbelievable and whoever knows them, knows just how incredible they really are. There are no words to describe how lucky we all are to have them as a part of our lives.

We want to support the Ghantous family because they are more than just friends, they are our family. Their love radiates onto everyone. They are able to change your life and make you feel special from the moment you meet them. Christian has been ferociously fighting and we want to be able to support them in a way that will be impactful.

Steffen and Alex, having to go into their savings to help aid in paying medical bills, continue to work extremely hard to help their parents out. The medical bills make it impossible to keep up with the everyday bills. With our help, they could focus on what is truly important - being together and supporting each other through it all.

We love Christian, Valli, Steffen, and Alex, endlessly, and we know that everyone in their lives feel the same. We have known these genuinely kind and amazing souls since the beginning and we know how hard they are working to stay happy and positive through these difficult times. We want to try to make this easier in any way possible. We want to be able to help them take the stress off of their bills so that they can focus on the matter at hand, loving and supporting one another while simultaneously trying every treatment to help save Chris’s life; this would change their world.

It is such an overwhelming task to accomplish alone, so any support would make an incredible impact on their lives - even just spreading the word and sharing with others.

Thank you so much!
