Default [NEW UPDATE] A good one..my co-workers son with Leukemia..[NEW UPDATE]

Most of you will remember this story from back in 2010 when he was first diagnosed. So many of you responded to my request to send emails to Christopher and the family was blown away by the kindness of Corvette Forum.
Since then on occasion I have posted a few updates about how Christopher was doing better and if you recall I auctioned off blankets that he and his friends made to give to other patients in the hospital.

Anyway things were going well for Christopher and he was getting his life back to normal after 4 years cancer free in fact he just got a new job.

Well this week they found out the Leukemia is back and unfortunately it's harder to treat the second time so they are looking at options including bone marrow replacement etc.

Here's where you come in

Last time I ask for emails but this time I think we should do cards lots of cards

So as not to overwhelm the family mail box I ask that you send them to my PO Box...feel free to have anyone you know send him a card with some encouragement to hang in there

looks like his birthday is coming up on the 18th

Please send them to:

Christopher
c/o Robert Briggs
P.O. Box 17083

not sure if 20 or 21...I think he had just turned 17 when this happened but not 100% sure so generic B-day card would be best if you go that route
Thanks!

A few years ago my C/O at Eglin cane around and asked if we wanted to go on the national list for bone marrow transplants. They swab your cheek and keep your dna on file. So for that I'm glad.

Ill send out a card tomorrow..

while I was out on a call this morning Chris's Dad stopped by and left a note on my desk telling me to thank everyone for their support and all the cards

Chris is responding well and ONLY getting 20 days of chemo as opposed to the original 23.

after that they move to bone marrow
