Help Chris Rebuild After Emergency Amputation

Donation protected
Dear friends and kind-hearted individuals,

Hi my name is Linda and our dear friends Marie and Christopher need our support more than ever! Many of you will know Marie as our beloved anthem singer and the most loyal of friends. Her partner Christopher is an Assistant Chief for Vancouver Fire & Rescue, serving our city with a career of 20+ years.

We are reaching out to you today with a heartfelt plea for assistance. Our dear friend Christopher and his family are currently stuck in Hong Kong due to an unexpected medical emergency. Christopher contracted necrotizing fasciitis during their family trip, which resulted in the amputation of his lower right limb.

While they are covered by travel insurance, the journey to recovery doesn't end there. Once they are finally able to return home to Vancouver, they will be faced with numerous expenses, including the purchase of a prosthetic limb and the challenges of coping with the loss of income during this difficult time.

We are starting this GoFundMe campaign to support Christopher and his family in rebuilding their lives after this traumatic experience. Your generous donations will go directly towards covering medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and helping them adapt to the new challenges they face. Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant impact on their journey towards recovery and rebuilding.

Let's come together as a community and show our support for Christopher and his family during this challenging period. Share this campaign with your friends, family, and social networks to spread the word and help them get the assistance they need.

Thank you for your compassion, generosity, and for being a source of strength for Christopher and his family in their time of need.

Note: We have obtained Christopher's and his family's consent to share their story and start this campaign on their behalf.
