Posted on March 21, 2017On behalf of my brother, parents and younger sister I would like to thank each and every one of you for your kind words, heartfelt prayers and thoughts as well as your generous donations. Your support has been crucial in this healing process for my brother and family.
Chris was able to pay for and undergo shoulder and facial reconstructive surgery and is now able to pay for many of his medical bills and physical therapy. You all have taken a tremendous amount of stress and worry off of his shoulders, so that he can instead focus on healing of mind, body and soul. Our family is eternally grateful.
We have been brought to tears at the site of so many communities coming together to show love and support for our Chris; from our law enforcement family (ranging from the DA's office, Public and Alternate Defender's offices and the Probation family) to the juggling/performing arts community and numerous church/faith based communities in addition to support of friends and family, we were often left speechless.
Although we will never forget the night this event has changed our lives and most importantly has changed Chris's life, we are proud to say his spirit has not been broken and he is proving to be a Phoenix rising from the ashes. His road to recovery is long but we are sure he will juggle his way down it a bigger and better person than before.
Thank you all!

Posted on March 10, 2017Update from Chris:
Next update in the healing process. I had facial surgery on Tuesday to fix all the fractures in my face. The surgery itself took only a few hours and I was able to return home around the evening. From what I heard around me since then, it was a success. As they made the incisions from the corners of my eyes I could not see for about a day after. My eyes were fused shut with the blood and are still slowly bleeding. I've gotten the bleeding mostly under control and out of both eyes. Sleeping has been hard and sometimes painful. I want to thank everyone that donated to help make the surgery possible. Thank you to my family and lals for being here personally helping me as I recover. Tomorrow I have a consultation for my shoulder and will know more about the next surgery regarding that.
