Cure for Chris

We are so blessed to live in a small community where people really care about each other.  We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, prayers, and support for our family recently.  Several people have suggested that we ask for financial help medical expenses.  After much prayer my brothers and I believe our dad, Chris Wilcox could really benefit from the generosity of others who care for him like family.  With that in mind we creating this go-fund me account to raise money to cover medical treatments for him.  In 2014 he was diagnosed with a rare muscular disease called Spordic Inclusion Body Myositis that as of today has no cure or treatments.  This horrible disease has made it difficult for him to walk, stand, eat and even perform simple everyday tasks.   Since this disease has no cure, most of his treatments are experimental and insurance does not cover most of these cost.  At this time these treatments are our only hope for our daddy.  Dad was recently accepted by a world renowned doctor in south Florida to conduct experimental alternative treatments.  These treatments will cost around $10,000 a month.  He is expected to stay in Florida for at least three months.  We are excited and hopeful that these treatments will help give our daddy a new lease on life so that he can get back to doing what he loves, being active and involved in our community!  We appreciate any donations but most importantly we need prayers for our family and most of all our Daddy!
