Chris lived life to the fullest and loved the outdoors. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout a few weeks before his death. Chris would go directly to a camping trip with his troop from the hospital. He was also an avid fisherman.
Chris got 'creative' both times before he lost his hair. When he was first diagnosed, a Scout mom came to the hospital and dyed his blond hair purple and then after he got out, he finished the hairdo off with a mohawk! Before he started into treatment the second time, his dearest friend Amy dyed his hair in rainbow colors as you see in this picture.
