In September 1988, Chris was diagnosed at just 14 months old with Astrocytoma (brain tumor). He went through 3 years of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of radiation. He has been in remission since 1991. The tumor was on his optical nerves so he is legally blind. He loved music and wanted to take lessons for a short while. Now Chris just teaches himself to play. He loves to sing and play his guitar at open mic nights and Rosie's Restaurant in New Oxford, PA to sing with Jam Band.
