I would like to start by saying Thank You for taking the time to read this.
For all of us who have been fortunate enough to know Chris there isn't much explanation needed for why he deserves this. From the moment Chris received the news that is father was diagnosed with cancer he immediately dropped everything that he had going on in his life and dedicated everything he had to this battle. He was the rock that held his father up while he was fighting such an awful disease. For the past few years Chris and his father fought extremely hard and did everything possible to win this battle. Unfortunately a little over a week ago his father lost his battle with cancer.
As a friend of his I have personally witnessed all that Chris has put forth for his father. He has been unbelievably selfless, at times even sacrificing his own job to ensure his father made it to his treatments. He is an amazing young man and after all he has endured, deserves some personal time just to get his mind off of everything. It has been a long time since he has taking some time for himself.
We have created this fundraiser to show our support and respect for all he has done. We are going to use the money raised to send him and whom ever he would like to spend some time with on a vacation just to get away for a few days and enjoy himself.
Thank You for any donation you are able to make. I am extremely grateful for all of your support for this great cause and I guarantee he will be 10 times more grateful. He is unaware that we have set this up for him. We have set the cut off for the funding right around christmas so we can make the donation during the holidays.
