Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Our amazing Chrissy Ann Viken, born April 25, 1980, is currently Stage 4 and in a home hospice situation, her transition is currently happening. She has days to weeks to live.
It's an incredibly rare cancer called synovial sarcoma, it's retroperitoneal. She has a grapefruit size tumor growing between her stomach and pancreas. It's inoperable.
She's the strongest, most brave person I've ever known & she will be missed every day by more people than she knew.
She's too weak to talk, text, have visitors. She was really hoping to get better so she could have visitors at her "cottage" in St Louis Park. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
She wants a funeral & a celebration of her life after the ceremony at Lakewood Cemetery in Uptown where her mom's buried. She made it clear she wants us to celebrate her, champagne, wine, laughter and memories.
I will update this site as the situation evolves. Please leave happy memories, stories for us, the friends & family of this magnificent humans can share with her.
She's so blessed for her friends & she really expected more time.
