The Story

Jonesboro, LA

Christopher Wages (16) is an intelligent young man. He has always loved playing video games and recently has developed a passion for programming video games. However, since his recent cancer diagnosis, he has been unable to partake in his favorite activities as much he once did.

During the fall of 2016, a lot of excitement was in air as the school year was starting. However, during this time Christopher noticed he was having trouble walking and difficulty breathing. This prompted his parents to take him to see a physician. Various symptoms like headaches, a cyst, and tumors led up to a diagnosis of neuroendocrine carcinoma. With this type of cancer, the neuroendocrine cells develop into tumors. This news devastated his mom, dad, and sister. Since his diagnosis, Christopher has had various treatments including chemotherapy and radiation.

Since Christopher’s diagnosis, the Wages family has had to travel quite a bit for his treatment, sometimes up to six hours away from their home. “Since we travel so far, we have to stay in hotels, sometimes a week at a time,” said Christopher’s mother, Shanti. As a mother, Shanti doesn’t want Christopher to face his battle alone. To be with her son during appointments and treatments, she has had to take time off work.

The Wages family hopes to raise $5,000 through RedBasket.org to assist with Christopher’s medical bills and travel expenses to and from treatments. Raising these funds will allow them to focus on Christopher’s recovery journey without having to think about these expenses. “I will always stress about his condition, but meeting our goal will help remove the financial stress,” said Shanti. Your fee-free donation will make a tremendous difference for the Wages family. Donate and share their story today!
