Welcome to Chris’s 2nd CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place as Chris goes to UCSF . We are so excited about this clinical research study, hoping it will help Chris with his central pain syndrome . He developed this terrible pain about 2 1/2 years after his 2015 stroke. We are both scared and hopeful that this deep brain stimulation will decrease his excruciating right side pain. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
