Ahead of the procedure, he reflected on their journey together, sharing an inspiring message on his IG page. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy!! Tomorrow We having surgery!!!!”

Thankfully, the surgery was a success. “What a journey it’s been,” wrote Chris, sharing an update the day after. “Surgery went well my dad is thriving kidney is working great!!!! Thank you all for the prayers.”
