Chris found The Colon Club’s website and the Colon Talk message board in the summer of 2009, shortly after his wife, Staci, was diagnosed with Stage III rectal cancer at age 32. Since her diagnosis, he’s been an advocate for colorectal cancer awareness and education, and he and Staci (Miss October in the 2012 Colondar) are active participants in the Get Your Rear in Gear series of 5K races. In his “day job,” Chris manages software and infrastructure projects for a large bank. He serves as The Colon Club’s treasurer and helps Sergei and others with the website when needed. Chris lives in Berlin Center, Ohio with Staci and their three children – Madeleine, Connor, and Murphy.
