This is the Caring for Chris fund. We are coming together to raise money for his medical costs. Please show your support!

This fundraiser is to help someone very close to my sisters and my heart. He has been a shoulder to cry on, a wall to lean on and a helping hand whenever needed. He is our step-father, Chris Avery. However step-father is not exactly to best term considering he has been the best father any one could ever have. I am not sure if he knows how to say "no" because anytime any of us girls needed anything he was always there for us without hesitation.
Well, now is the time for us to try to attempt to repay just a small portion of the support he has given us throughout the years. Just after the first of the new year, my father went in for a routine eye exam and came out with horrible news. He was diagnosed with choroidal melanoma (eye cancer). We have not found out yet if it has spread throughout his body, but that will come soon after he visits a few specialist for a full body scan.
My parents do have insurance but their out of pocket portion is 20% and the surgery itself will cost $300,000. This is something that no one ever excepts to happen and we are asking for anything anyone can give, even if it is just a pray, we will take what we can get. We would like to thank any and everyone who helps us:
