On Friday April 21st, Chris suffered a stroke while at work due to a blod clot in his brain. While in the emergency room, it was discovered that Chris's heart was enlarged and functioning at only 10-15%. Since Friday, he has had 3 MRIs and 4 CAT scans, several EKGs, an echocardiogram, and remains in the neuro-intensive care unit at Sanford Hospital. Once his condition regarding his stroke has stabilized, he will move to the cardiac intensive-care unit where he will undergo an angioplasty/gram to determine whether he will need open heart surgery. It is undertermined at this point if he will need a pacemaker or an implanted defibrillator. For the next three months Chris will be unable to return to work. Chris's wife Melisa stays at home caring for their twin 2 year olds, one of which has a neurological seizure condition. Currently, the extent of Chris's ongoing medical treatment, resulting medical bills, and lost wages is unknown. For anyone who knows Chris, he is the type of guy that would "give the shirt off his back to help anyone." Any assitance you can provide to this family in need would be greatly appreciated.
