Chris’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Chris's progress.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.



On Sunday afternoon (8-8-10 @ 5pm), Chris sustained an injury that fractured the C4 and C5 vertebrae in his neck.  He was airlifted to Methodist Hospital (Neuro Critical Care Unit) in Indianapolis.  On Monday (8-9-10) at 2pm, Chris underwent surgery for 3-4 hours to fuse together the broken vertabrae and to stablize them from causing any further damage.  At the moment, Chris is mostly unable to move from the shoulders down. However, he has been able to move his right big toe and make his right arm muscles twitch. Also, he's been able to feel touch, tingling, and hot and cold from the beginning. He never blacked out nor did he sustain any kind of head injury. He has been alert and himself the whole time (unless medicated for pain or surgery). As one might expect, he is emotional and trying to process the whole thing, but he's fighting like a champ to stay positive. This is a critical time for his family and friends to rally around him and give him our full support.  Chris is currently at the Rehabilition Hospital of Indianapolis (38th and I-465 on the westside). Having visitors really uplifts his spirits.  The best time to visit Chris is between 6-9pm during the weekdays or anytime on Saturday or Sunday.    Please check the "Journal" section of Chris' profile for the latest developments !! 

Please be in prayer for Chris !!

If you'd like to speak with someone, feel free to contact me (Justin Davis) at 317-612-4737 or his mother (Monice).

Latest Journal Update

New Video and NeuroHope crowdfunding update

Hi all!

Just wanted to pop-in to share Chris' latest video.

It's a moving testimonial about the battle we faced fighting insurance to keep him in rehabilitation in the early days of his recovery.  Incredibly, he reads one of the denial letters that claimed he wasn't making enough progress.  It's a stunning reminder of what so many families go through - and why he has been moved to create NeuroHope in Indiana.

Also, tomorrow is THE LAST DAY the NeuroHope crowdfunding page will be live!

We would greatly appreciate your support - EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!  The Physical Therapist that has joined NeuroHope will begin seeing her first patients this winter in a space that has been provided by the University of Indianapolis.  Chris has been working tirelessly building relationships with potential donors and traveling to facilities in Michigan, Maryland, and more, to secure equipment donations.
