Help the Callaway’s

Chris has been struggling with a lung issue for the past few months. He’s had a couple lung biopsies/procedures and the diagnosis so far has been a fungal disease. Even more recently he’s been having short term memory problems that have resulted in him being hospitalized for further work up. As of today, Thursday, September 13th, the doctors found that he also now has five lesions on his brain. They have been unable to come to a diagnosis and have been treating him symptomatically. It was determined that Chris will need immediate brain surgery to have a lesion biopsied/removed on Friday, Sept 14th. There has also been discussion of transferring Chris to a larger and more specialized hospital. With impending brain surgery and unknown official diagnosis, recovery is going to be a long haul. Chris, his wife Kymbre and their daughter have quite the journey in front of them and we want to let them know they have love and support behind them. Anyone that knows Chris knows that he would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. With that said, Chris will be off work for the unforseeable future and his wife Kymbre is also missing work to be by her husband’s side. Along with bills piling up they will now have the added stress of medical expenses. Please help us help them and take away some of their financial stress so they can focus on Chris’ diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
