28715402_15222692210_r.jpegHello, my name is Elisabeth and I created this GoFundMe page for Tara Metsker's awesome son, Christopher.

Christopher is a extraordinary young man that can brighten any room with his smile.  Recently, he became extremely sick...the worst he has ever been.

When Christopher was just 3 1/2 months old, he went into septic shock & cardiac respiratory arrest because of Bacterial Meningitis. Baby Chris was without oxygen for 1 hour and in cardiac arrest for 2 hours. 
After suffering from 4 strokes and being on life support for 7 days, Christopher's family was told that he wouldn't live through the night. But Christopher didn't agree.
Everyone kept putting an "expiration" date on Chris but he always pulled through. Even with Cerebral Palsy, over 100 trips to the hospital, having pneumonia more than 20 times, and countless surgeries, Christopher has remained a fighter - battling everything with a smile on his face and Britney Spears rockin' in his ears!

He's battled his entire life just to stay alive and Tara and her family have been right by his side the whole time. Tara has had the opportunity to care for her son just to try and make ends meet and also create an incredible bond like no other. 
She has fought for him to have the best care, the best nurses, the best options, which led for him to have his best life. Tara has been working with Chris to create a life for him that no one ever believed he would have - not even doctors. 

But unfortunately, they are reaching the end their time with Christopher. 

Now, not only are they faced with losing their son, brother, and friend, but they are also facing losing their house and the stress of all their bills falling behind.
Because Tara had the opportunity to care for Christopher as her main job, she has no choice but to search for a job. She won't even have time to mourn the loss of her son. 

The Metskers have been through a lot these past few years alone. Chris is unable to speak for himself. Tara has been Chris's voice. She has fought the hardest for him and needs help.

They've been in the hospital for numerous weeks now and bills are adding up fast. The money raised here will be used towards helping the family with any expenses  they need covered for Chris: medical bills, funeral arrangements, and a way to keep the roof over their head.
I know that Christopher's last wish would be for his family to be able to continue living in his honor. His family has done everything in their power to keep him happy and I know that he now would wish for his family to continue living like him - happy and stressfree...and maybe even listen to Britney from time to time.

Please help this wonderful family out so they can mourn the loss of their angel without having the added stress...
