Christopher Lee's Medical Expenses

On Thursday, August 9, 2018 - the first day of the National Flute Association Convention in Orlando, Florida - our dear friend Christopher Lee suffered a major heart attack due to the main artery to his heart being completely blocked. CPR was administered, and he was rushed to the Dr. P Phillips Hospital in Orlando where he has remained in critical condition in the ICU since his arrival.

To date, Christopher has undergone major surgeries to add stents and pumps, has received several blood transfusions, began dialysis when his kidneys began to fail, and has received countless additional procedures to give him a fighting chance at what he loves: LIFE! As of the date of the creation of this page (08.13.18), it is projected he will remain in the hospital at least 2 more weeks, and he will most certainly require rehabilitation after being released and when he returns to Toronto.

As a Canadian citizen, Christopher does not have insurance in the United States as Canadian coverage does not generally cross borders. The costs of his emergency and long-term care are exponentially accumulating with each day that passes, and this is why those who love him have created this page: to let others who also love him, who have been touched by him through his music, his mentorship, or even simply by reading this story, can contribute to his journey of healing by helping to alleviate some of the financial burden that now faces him and his family due to this tragic and life-changing medical crisis.
