Chrissy, Nate, and their two children, Madison and Alexis, live in Detroit Lakes, MN. Since discovering Chrissy had Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in December, she has been navigating a challenging journey of medical procedures and treatments. Following an MRI that revealed additional areas of concern, she underwent a double lumpectomy surgery in mid-January. During the surgery, the doctors discovered Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Ductal Carcinoma In Situ, and the beginnings of Lobular Carcinoma. Chrissy is now preparing for radiation therapy and possibly chemotherapy. As a middle school teacher, she faces the prospect of missing work for her treatments, despite having sick leave available. However, her high deductible insurance plan with a $10,000 out-of-pocket cost presents a financial burden. Additionally, Chrissy will need to commute daily to Fargo for a month for radiation and potential chemotherapy sessions. Following this, she will embark on a five to ten-year hormone therapy regimen, which will also come with its own financial implications. Chrissy’s journey is not just about battling cancer but also about navigating the emotional, physical, and financial tolls that come with it.

Your online gift will be boosted by 20%, with 100% of your gift going directly to the family. Cash/checks may be gifted directly to Chrissy.
