ALL DONATIONS FROM THIS FUNDRAISER HAVE BEEN GIVEN COMPLETE CONTROL OF TO CHRIS' FAMILY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE DONATIONS BUT PLEASE SHARE THE NEW LINK FROM NOW ON

I'm raising money for the family of U.S. Navy hospital corpsman Chris Gnem to cover any funeral related miscellaneous expenses such as family travel, memorial cost, and any unforeseen expenses that the military may not cover. He was 1 of the 8 service members that died in a devastating military training accident off the coast of San Diego on July 31st when an amphibious assault vehicle malfunctioned and sank in the ocean. He was a loving son, friend, sailor, and earned the title of Doc from his marines. Anyone you ask will tell you that Chris always had a big smile on his face and could brighten up anyone's day. He was 22 years old. Money cannot replace him, or console his grieving family, but I want to atleast do what I can to ease the financial stress that comes with funerals and memorials. Travel is a big part of funeral cost and financial stress is the last thing his family needs right now. All donations will go directly to his parents. Please donate if you can and share on your social media platforms. Thank you.50150740_1596488216580809_r.jpeg
