This is the Chris Schmad Liver Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Chris Schmad has been privately battling Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) for several years with only the support of his immediate family and close friends. In 2011, Chris received news from his doctors that, due to the damaging effects of PSC, he would require a liver transplant in 2012. Chris has chosen to obtain a new liver through a live donor transplant.

Due to outward signs of his illness becoming apparent to those around him, Chris exposed his illness and need for a liver transplant to family, friends, and coworkers. Chris does have health insurance, but the liver transplant procedure will force his family to endure many ongoing out-of-pocket expenses. Chris' wife will also be out of work for several months as she cares for Chris post-surgery.

Chris, a husband and father of two children, has proudly served the community for over 20 years. Now as a supervisor, Chris mentors those that choose to serve. Let's all give back to Chris to thank him for what he has given to us!
