For Chris' Handsome Sons

On Thursday, July 20th 2017 Chris Gladden had a massive stroke that caused significant damage to his brain.  He was unable to regain consciousness afterwards.  Over the course of one week after the first stroke he continued to have several more strokes that continued to render him brain dead and in a coma.  The afternoon of July 27th 2017 his heart became affected by the damage to his brain and he went into cardiac arrest.  The doctors worked hard but they were unable to save his life.  

Chris Gladden was a son, brother, uncle and father.  Father to two boys.  11 year old Connor and 3 month old Cameron.  Cameron was born 4 months early and has been in the NICU since birth and still remains there.  He is doing well and was even able to be placed in his fathers arms before he passed away.  It was a memory that our family will cherish forever.  

The family would like to raise money to help pay for memorial costs and to be able to provide for his boys financially.  Anything that you are able to provide would be so very much appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
