The friends and family of Cris "The Wix" Qualiana Basham are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Multiple Sclerosis.

Cris is a caring, compassionate person, loved by family and friends. As “The Wix”, Cris brought passion to her job running a record label and inspired many people to achieve their dreams in music and art. Art is Cris's true passion. Living on the road on tour, the World became Cris's classroom. Hotel rooms stood in for studios. And Cris met herself, as an artist, through her painting and drawing.

On May 7th, 2012, Cris woke up unable to use her right arm and hand. Terrifying for anyone and devastating to Cris as an artist. A spinal tap confirmed that Cris has Multiple Sclerosis. Further tests revealed that Cris's brain and spine are covered with (as only Cris can put it) "a mess of lesions. Eek!"

The money raised will help with a $13,000 hospital bill, $4,000/month interferon treatments (donated for a limited time), and other out-of-pocket medical/living expenses, while they live off of one income. Also, Keith needs to move Cris to a cooler climate, since heat worsens MS.

This crippling disease has pushed Cris and Keith to their limit physically, emotionally and financially, but I know they are grateful for your generous contributions, thoughts, and prayers.

If you have questions, or want to buy Cris's art, or would like to send a donation to Cris at her home, please contact her or Keith on Facebook (links to the left).

Thank you again, and please click the Facebook/Twitter buttons at the top of this page to share Cris's story.
