Rallying for Chris Talbot!

On Easter Sunday, Chris was playing video games when he called to Jenni for help.

Unbelievably, he had a major stroke (possibly two, the doctors think) and was medflighted to Boston Medical Center. Chris is only 39.

Since then, Jenni, Christine, Rob, and other family and friends have been by his side constantly as they wait for him to stabilize.

Chris has also had anumber of surgeries and procedures--importantly, to try and reduce the swelling and fluid buildup in his brain.  

The hospital bills and time lost from work are already significant. Help in any amount would be so truly appreciated as we all pray and hope for Chris to make a full recovery.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.

With love,
Jenni Smolak and the Talbot Family
