My name is Chris Gallagher... This is my story. Some of you know me, some of you don't. If I don't know you and you are reading this, God bless you! Thank you for taking the time out of your day to care and even read this. I live in Remington, Va. I have a BEAUTIFUL wife Crystal, and 3 AMAZING kids...Declan(15), Brady(13), and Molly(2). Seriously... I know everybody says that about their wife and kids (or at least I hope they do LOL)...but if you've met my mine, you know I'm not even making it up LOL... I mean, seriously... they're beautiful and cool and smart and funny and awesome and everything I could have ever asked for! I am more blessed than I deserve...
I was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer just this year on March 8th...
Check out the journal entries below to read about what a journey it has been for us to get to this point... my story didn't start in a typical way, and it sure isn't going to end in the typical way either!!!!
This is real... we understand There is no Stage 5. We get that.
With the help of Jesus Christ and lots of prayer... I plan on Surviving. I plan on living with stage 4 for a loong time to come I plan on walking my gorgeous daughter down the aisle on her wedding day I plan on celebrating the birth of my grandkids I plan on taking my wife wherever she wants to go for our 50th wedding anniversary I plan beating this shitty disease into submission!!! I plan on being a testament to what God can do when you fully trust in him and have faith in him I plan on being one they talk about
