Mallardi support fund

Update as of 12 May 2018: 
Sadly, Christopher lost his battle against stage IV colon cancer. Any funds raised will now be put toward his funeral costs, and also supporting his wife Jessika, and son Michael as they transition into this new chapter in life without Chris. He is gone far too soon, and we are all heartbroken. 

========================================
Christopher Mallardi: Cancer Treatment Fund

We are the family and friends of Christopher, Jessika & Michael Mallardi. We created this Go Fund Me account to help offset Christopher’s ongoing medical costs.

In November 2016, at age 49, Christopher was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer spread to his liver and abdominal wall, and the only treatment plan available to him was to receive chemotherapy every other week.

Christopher started chemotherapy right after Christmas 2016. After three months of chemo, his CT scans showed that the cancer did not shrink, but was not growing. His oncologist decided to continue with chemo in hopes that further treatment would shrink the tumors.

It’s been one year since Christopher’s diagnosis and we are still praying for a  MIRACLE!

Christopher has undergone multiple chemotherapy protocols, but unfortunately the treatments are not stopping the growth of his tumors.

He is now about out of conventional options that could help him. For this reason, we are trying to raise funds as soon as possible.

His oncologist has suggested that he try to find a clinical trial.

If he qualifies for a clinical trial, he will need to travel to a major cancer center. This would require going to someplace like Texas, New York, Maryland….

His doctor told him that the medical care will be covered.

However, it would be the Mallardi’s responsibility to cover the cost of transportation and lodging for the multiple visits each month or for his long-term stay, should they require that for him.

If there is not a clinical trial available to him, he will need to look for other options. This could also require him to travel and these alternative treatments would not be covered by insurance.

Christopher must concentrate on fighting the most difficult fight of his life. He will be dedicating his time and energy to healing and spending precious time with his wife and son.

Please consider making a donation and sharing this with other people who are inclined to pray and support the Mallardi family through this difficult journey. 

Thank you for supporting Christopher’s fight against cancer. Let’s do our best to make it possible for him to participate in any clinical trial and/or alternative therapy he may need to heal. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated!
