With Heavy Heart

Christopher
May 14, 1962 - Feb. 22, 2016

With heavy heart I announce that Christopher, brother to my crafty friend Bozena (Art Card Box), lost his battle with lung cancer yesterday.  He fought hard and tried experimental therapies in order to survive, but it would not be so.

I first wrote about Christopher in this blog post, and then gave an update at the end of December in this post, when Christopher's health seemed to improve.

My deepest sympathies go to my dear friend Bozena and her family.  Thanks to all that supported Christopher through prayer and to those who provided financial support for the experimental treatments.  Our crafting community is very giving and generous.  Christopher was genuinely touched by the outpouring of love from so many people that didn't even know him.    Thank you.

  5. It is with a very heavy heart that I comment about Christopher's loss with his lung cancer Loll. I am just so sadden by this news, as of course it brings back vivid memories of Dwayne's last day/night. Cancer truly sucks!!! I can't believe this day and age we don't have a cure. We can send men into space and do all sorts of amazing things today but we can't cure cancer?! Why?!!! My prayers are with Christopher's family, thanks for sharing this with us Loll. Hugs, Brenda

  16. Loll, I am very grateful for all her love and support. Loll is an extraordinary person, a true friend. I did not expect so much help from her hand, and when we fought with Christopher, she constantly surrounded us help and support. I am grateful to all of you who prayed for our cause, all those who financially supported the treatment of Christopher and supported us a good word. So much goodness happened to me of you, I am indebted to your ...
    Thank you for everything in the name of Christopher.
    hugs,
    BozenA
