So, a few weeks ago his family and coworkers got a big, nasty surprise. Our long-time traffic reporter and friend (maybe you know him from Healthy U on Cox7 or maybe he DJ'd your wedding) needed emergency brain surgery. When pathology came back, Jason's wife, Kerri, told us it's a glioblastoma cancer in his brain. Here are some of her social posts keeping us all informed of his progress:
July 7th: "Jason Christopher update....just wanted to thank everyone for the warm comments and prayers.He was brought into surgery at 10:30 this morning. They updated me and said everything is going smoothly right now and am waiting to hear more. He should be out around 2:30-3pm. Thanks again for all of your continued support!"
July 19th: "Jason Christopher update...So we received news last week that the pathology report came back positive for glioblastoma brain cancer. It has been an emotional roller coaster this past few weeks. First finding the tumor, Jason going through surgery and finding out it's an agressive cancer. Through our family, friends and faith...we are going to fight with everything we have.He is working hard every day and doing great in rehab and we're waiting for him to come home in about a week. He will then be home for a week or two before starting treatments. We are working with the top Barrow neurologists and oncologists to come up with a plan to fight.Jason Christopher is a fighter and the most amazing husband and father anyone could ask for. We are on a mission to beat this so we are asking to keep the prayers coming please."
July 26th: "Jason Christopher update...He is back in ICU today after having surgery to insert a shunt to help drain extra fluid off his brain. He did great during and after surgery and is recovering."
Everyone who prays is lifting up Jason and his family, and even more are interested in helping with a GoFundMe account set up in his name. If YOU can, here's the link! Thanks, you guys! We love this man and his sweet family! ~Melissa
