Community is defined as “a feeling of fellowship with others.”  When a fellow community member needs to be lifted up, the rest of us rally to the calling and offer our support. The Carranzas have rallied many times for their community, and now is our time to support them.

On September 28, after some stomach and back pain that would not subside, Chris went to get it checked out. Following an evaluation and imaging, abnormalities were discovered in his pancreas and liver. This prompted a follow-up procedure on October 4, where it was determined that the abnormalities were related to Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

As you can imagine, this diagnosis brings a new meaning to the phrase taking life one day at a time. Recent days and weeks have been filled with researching treatments, physician consultations, and working through the best path forward. Family and close friends have been incredibly supportive and focused on helping Chris and Debbie navigate the upcoming weeks and months as treatment begins.

You all know Chris…he’s not one to back down from a battle! So he is facing this diagnosis head-on with an aggressive treatment plan, starting with Chemo. As treatment begins, the goal of this site is to keep friends and family up to date. Although texts, calls, and visits are kind gestures – the focus now is healing and time spent navigating treatment. Please use this platform to share your love and support.

Please keep Chris and the Carranza family in your prayers!
