Christopher O'Bryant Healing Fund

Our dear friend, father, husband, son, brother, uncle, court jester, master juggler, awesome brewer, king of kiwi kastle , the guy with a smile always on his face, was recently diagnosed with stage 4 renal cell carcinoma.  Christopher will be receiving agressive cancer treatment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance starting later this month. The next six months will be an intensive regimen,  with continued focus on healing and recovery throughout this next year. Obviously this is a challenging time for Christopher, Candace and their sons Seamus and Ronan.  We  hope that by raising money through this platform,  we can lift some of the financial burden off the family, as Christopher focuses on healing. We will soon be setting up a Caring Bridge so we can stay connected with updates, and help needed. Thank you friends, family, island community, and beyond!

You can also contribute via check at Islanders Bank on Lopez Island. Just tell them you wish to donate to Christopher O'Bryant & Candace Downey & they will deposit in their account. Islanders Bank 45 Weeks Rd., Lopez Is., WA. 98261
