Chris Whitehurst needs our support, well wishes & love....
For those of you who have seen or been a part of any kind of live music on the Outer Banks, you've probably run into Chris.
As the owner of Sea Level Sound, you've probably seen him running one of countless events and shows up and down the beach, at places like the Brewing Station, Kelly's, Port O' Call, Duck Concert Series & Jazz Fest, Mustang Music Festival and many many more.
For any of you who have played music at these shows, you probably remember him as one of the best sound guys the OBX has to offer.
Recently, he got sick.
After being admitted to the hospital for the past 3 weeks, the doctors told him that not only does he have Endocarditis, an infection on the aortic valve of his heart, but also a spinal infection, caused by a colorectal tumor.
His dedicated cardiac & oncology medical team are currently coordinating his very complicated path to recovery. Plans for radiation/chemo and at least 2 surgeries are anticipated - spanning a minimum of the next 6 months. Unfortunately, during this extended healing period he will not be able to work and thus we have an aggressive goal amount targeted to cover his living & medical expenses.
For the past 25+ years, Chris has been instrumental to so many philanthroptic events by donating his time & talent. It is our hope that we can reciprocate & give him a hand.
If you are not in a position to donate, please send your well wishes & of course prayers are welcome too!
