Over the course of approximately 2 years, Cris had been struggling with his health. He experienced dramatic weight loss, anemia and a significant loss of energy. Cris continued to keep up his busy work schedule while his health was failing. He also made numerous doctor visits to try and figure out what was going on. Recently, he finally learned the reason. He had a cancerous growth on his kidney. As a father of children, I can not imagine the fear in not knowing if I’ll live to see my children grow up. Yet, this is the position Cris is in and he has handled it with courage and determination. By God’s grace, Cris had a successful surgery to remove the growth and start receiving treatments. Removing the growth also meant removing his kidney, spleen and a lymph node.
Cris has always been able to pay out of pocket for any medical issues that his family has had. In the past, he could pick up extra work and do whatever he needed to do take care of his responsibilities. However, this is something he could have never prepared for. Not only will the medical bills be expensive but he will not have the ability to work for quite some time. Even when he recovers, he may not be able to perform the same types of hard labor he was used to doing.
Cris is a good father, husband, brother, son and friend. Most of all, he is a good man. I know Cris and his family would be very grateful and appreciative of any help you could provide to help shoulder this burden.
