Chris Daigle is an outgoing, energetic 61-year-old journalist and historian in Houston, Texas. His career has taken him on tour with the Rolling Stones, flying with the Blue Angels, and the coverage of many events for Associated Press in a 40-plus year career.
Chris suffered a stroke on the right side of his brain on November 9, 2018 while driving to work. He suffered paralysis on his left side, which severely limits his mobility. Now, his organizational and cognitive skills are limited as well, and this means Chris cannot work, and he doesn’t know how long he will be unable to do so.
Without a paycheck, and with benefits a long way off, Chris is rapidly losing the ability to pay for rent and bills, especially medical bills and prescriptions. Chris has no family to help him.
All money raised will go toward rent, bills and medical co-pays.
Chris is independent and determined to overcome these challenges, but it takes time and money, which are two things that are in short supply right now.
Chris does not know when or if benefits will begin, and expenses are piling up. Whether you know Chris, know of him, or do not know him at all, any contribution, big or small, will greatly impact his progress to recovery. This fund is to make sure Chris can live independently as he did before his stroke. With an estimated 4 months until benefits are in place, we will need to raise $20,000. If you can, please consider a donation to help Chris get back to normal!
Thank you in advance for anything you can give!
