Getting Chris Back on His Feet

On Monday, September 23 Chris and I were struck by a vehicle while walking in Portland, Oregon. Fortunately I escaped with no more than some bumps, bruises, scrapes, and a scare of vehicles. Unfortunately, Chris is the worse for wear and will need some time to fully recover. Thankfully ALL medical bills will be covered by the driver's insurance, however, other expenses such as rent, bills, and food will not. Chris was  in transition from jobs as this event took place so has no way to prove he was supposed to be working and has lost wages.

I'm starting this campaign to help eliminate stress for Chris while he goes through physical therapy and begins to recover before returning to work. I set the goal at $5,000 which should help pay his rent ($1,400), bills, and food for the next few months while he gets back on his feet. Anything at all will help reach this goal and be much appreciated. Anyone that knows Chris knows he would be there to help when he could. Cheers.
