My name is Cam Clerx and I am just some 18 year old living in Dana Point, CA, but this isnt about me. This is about my best friend Cris Calvo (18) who after weeks in the hospital has finally been diagnosed with Chronic Leukemia. Cris has been my best friend for as long as I can remember and has always been the greatest supporting friend anyone could ask for. He is an amazing photographer and a car enthusiast. Cris has a loving family and a little brother, Eli, who looks up to Cris.
For those of you who don't know what Leukemia is, its a cancer of the blood in which bone-marrow and other blood producing organs function improperly, overproducing white blood cells instead of red ones. Of course insurance will cover some of the costs, but it wont cover for everything. Your donations will help cover the costs of treatments, medicine, and living costs for his family in the hospital. Absolutely anything will help and the sooner we receive these dontations, the better Cris' chance will be of surviving and living a normal life. Cris is an amazing person who lives life looking at the world from a lens in which the world has never seen, and losing this lens would be not a loss to us, but to the world. 

Thank you so much for your help, I appreciate it, his family appreciates it, and Cris appreciates it. Together we can help fight this and help Cris pull through Leukemia.

Update 2/7/2016: Cris is slowly starting to do okay again. Doctors say he might not even need chemo! Soon to find out. What we do know is that he will need to live the rest of his life on daily medication. As of now, we believe its safe to lower the goal to $10k to support the medical costs. Cris was absolutely stunned to find out how much support was pulled together in just 24 hours! This proves that the world really is full of good people. Slowly but surely Cris is starting to return to normal with his white blood cell count cut in half. Thanks so much to everyone, especially the car community, who found this and either donated or shared. Its been a huge help and none of this would be possible without you guys. Now lets keep the ball rolling!

Hey Cris... I was sad to hear the news, but I know you will get better. Gonna keep "racking the tabs up" lol, and you should definitely come in to see a movie when you are feeling well enough. I'm praying you have the best health coming your way.
