Update: After successful surgery for what doctors have now classified as stage 4 colon cancer, Chris will be receiving follow-up chemotherapy treatment beginning March 27 at City of Hope. During the first phase of treatment, a small spot on her liver grew to the size of a quarter. It was successfully excised in surgery, along with her gallbladder and approximately 13 inches of colon. But, due to the extremely aggressive nature of this cancer (which actually GREW during radiation), her doctors feel this course of follow-up treatment is vital to giving her the best possible chance at a full recovery. THANK YOU for your continued support of our dear friend!

Chris's Story
Chris has been diagnosed with stage III colon cancer, a huge shock to us all.  If anyone is a survivor, Chris Strother is the ultimate!  But we know that the cancer is aggressive and she must move forward rapidly. Chris is preparing to undergo conventional cancer treatment while continuing to support her overall health with a variety of integrative & complementary therapies.

During the coming months, Chris will be unable to work at her normal capacity. As a single mom, she is very aware that this means she will need help. If you know Chris, you know that accepting this kind of help does not come easy for her. But, we have convinced her that relieving some of her financial burden will allow her to focus all of her energy on healing. Our goal is to raise funds to cover one year of medical and living expenses. 

We are hoping to raise funds to help her with medical co-pays; living expenses; integrative nutrition; ongoing expenses for her son, Eli; and complementary therapies that are not covered by insurance.

Chris is a precious and inspiring friend to many, a true renaissance woman with extraordinary gifts to further bring to our world. We are inviting her friends, fans, and community to support her during this challenging time. We want her to know that we are here for her, as she has been for so many of us.
