God willing, we will have a donor soon. Chris has been on the list at San Antonio Transplant Hospital for going on 5 years. Keep those prayers coming and hopefully soon we will get a kidney donated.If you would, pass the word on through your church, community organizations and your own personal website. God bless!!

Hello, we are posting the first post for 2020. This is the 4th year that Chris has been on the the transplant list. They say that the 5th year is the magic year to get a kidney. We stay hopeful since Chris has stage 5 kidney disease.

At school, just before Christmas, a fellow teacher offered to be tested to see if she could be a match. The extra good news is that her mother had been a transplant recipient and she understands the process. She told me about the recipient program where you can donate, even if you are not a match, then they give your kidney to someone who is a match and in turn moves Chris up the list to the next kidney match. From the way she was talking, I think she may consider doing that for Chris. We just wait and pray.

If all works out, by this summer maybe we will have a kidney and the transplant will take place. Everyone out there, pass on the search and think positive thoughts for our Chris. Thank you!

I want to thank Martha Medlock and Sherry Baker, our principal, to allow mentioning blood testing to our staff at Lake Travis Middle School. Martha set up a form, on line, to fill out for any staff member who would be willing to be tested as a possible match. Chris is type O positive. I appreciate the effort and goodwill that was extended to Chris at this time. Thank you!

Thank you for your concern and well wishes. Chris is continuing with tests and preparation in case a donor match comes along. He just had an ecocardiogram and then after this he will continue with his regular regiment and regular blood work. Keep Chris in your prayers and hopefully something will come up for him.

Chris, I am praying for your complete healing and that someone has already been prepared to provide you with a nice, healthy kidney. You stood by me in touch times when I had Sound Reinforcements when all others had abandoned me. You always did the right thing and not only were you a good rep for Aldridge, but a good friend. We need you around much longer. God is a work, though you may not see Him. But he's providing for you every day. Blessings and prayers, my friend.

Chris, I’m a friend and “groupie” from the old Bloomington Red Lion days, and just saw this post on your Facebook page. I’m so sorry you’re going through all this, and I’m praying for your quick move up the transplant list to new health. I want to wish you a happy birthday too!! It was such a pleasure to see you at the anniversary party for the Red Lion last winter! I want you to continue feeling all the joy that you’ve given out over the years to all of us fans!!💕 Sherry Robards-Cottone

I met Chris through my father being in the sound business since I was a kid. Eventually, I ended up in the business and still remember Chris being so professional and personally concerned for all of his clients. I pray for a miracle that only the Creator can do any way He chooses so Chris can continue to be a blessing to everyone around him. He always greeted me and others with a smile and that is still my memory of him to this day. Now that I am an Audio/Video Production teacher in high school I find myself needing to greet my students with that same positive smile no matter what because it does make a difference to other around you. Many blessings, Chris!

Chris, you are the most positive, genuine person I have ever met. I only wish the best outcome for you with this battle you are facing. I'm sorry we have not stayed in closer contact the past few years, but talking with you last week, it is as if no time has passed since the days of our frequent talks and visits. With the love and support of your wonderful family and friends, you will prevail. Thoughts and prayers are with you from The Hamill Family.
