Previous Donation Recipient: Kris Coffin

September 30th, 2011
Kris Coffin, a member of The Crossings Church, went to the doctor with what he thought was the flu, but within days he got the devastating
news that he had stage 3 Colon Cancer. Kris is 30 years old and has two young children. Kris is in business for himself but with having to take chemotherapy he is unable to work. We want to do everything that we can to help in this time of hurt.
Kris was diagnosed with Colon Cancer about two months ago.  He had surgery on Feb. 24th at Missouri Baptist Medical Center and the surgeon removed a foot and a half of his colon. Leading up to the surgery was long and frustarting. Finally, he got some answers after four months of extreme abdominal pain.  I found out it was cancerous two days before his surgery, the surgeon then told him that he would have to have a port put in his chest in order to receive the treatment.

About a month later the same surgeon that took out part of his colon tried to put the port in. While he was putting the port in, the surgeon accidently punctured his left lung.  So a different surgeon put the port in and he also had a chest tube in for about three days. He receives chemo once every two weeks,
the chemo will be for six months. Kris does believe that God has total control of his life and that he is cancer free as of right now. With the tumor being taken out he has a 60% chance of being cancer free already. With the chemo he has a 98% chance of surving this. Kris believes God will give him the strength to get through this and he has the full support from our church, family, and friends.

Thank you, Kris Coffin
