Hospital stay

Chris was hit by a vehicle while walking on the side of the road on Saturday night Sept. 15th. Both of his legs were severely broken and he has significant wounds to both legs as well. He’s already had 4 surgeries to repair his legs, and still has a few to go. Incidentally, they found a brain tumor to his R temporal (side) lobe, which they are planning to remove on Monday, September 24th. The doctors are anticipating one leg wound taking 3-6 months to heal, and the other 6-9 months. Depending on the results of the tumor testing, he may undergo chemotherapy as well, which will slow the healing process to the legs. We are planning on doing fundraisers at a later date, but his family needs him here by his side, as he battles the uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis. We fully believe that this was meant to happen, or the tumor wouldn’t have been discovered until it was more advanced. My husband and I are unable to help as much as we would like to, as we are taking time off to be by his side, until he is more stable. Chris is a hard worker, and great provider for his kiddos and fiancé. He needs help with what our insurance won’t cover, and to help with basic necessities for his kiddos. We are preparing for a long recovery, with additional surgeries, in-patient rehab, and possible cancer treatments. If you can help financially or through prayer alone, he will gladly accept all the help he can get. He’s pretty special to me, and I’d love to see one less burden he has to carry right now. Love you all- Stephanie (momma bear)
