Stand Strong with Chris

Please help support my amazing brother-in-law, Chris! Chris and his family are going through a very difficult time! Chris is a faithful husband to his wife Alicia and he is a soon to be father, as she is expecting a baby. He is an amazing son, brother, and friend! Chris was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare cancer located in his leg and knee. The doctors feel that they have caught it early and he has a good prognosis, however his leg will need to be amputated. Chris works for a small company and will need a lengthy time off from work for chemo treatments, his surgical procedure, additional chemotherapy, and recovery. Additonally, Chris is a volunteer firefighter. He demonstrates such selflessness and is already missing going out on fire calls to help others in need.  Due to his long recovery, intensive surgery and treatments, and no income coming in, they could greatly use any monetary donations to help assist them in this difficult time. Also, we are asking for prayers! We truly believe in the power of prayer and know that is helping Chris and Alicia get through this. Any donations are greatly appreciated! It is so comforting to have such incredible family and friends supporting them in this trying time. Let's stand strong for Chris and show them how much we are there to help them along the way! God bless you for your generosity, care, prayers, and love!
