Chris was born July 1st, 1956 in St. Louis Missouri.  Chris grew up in St. Louis area, Columbus, Ga and Panama City Florida.   Her first cancer started when she was 17 and married her first husband Jason Dean that same year.  After her recovery Jason and Chris separated but remain close friends.

She started three girl scout troops, volunteered at schools, to help the homeless, for emergency groups, where ever she lived. She never stopped, even when the illnesses brought her low.  The diseases forged the strongest woman, one that knew how to fight.  Such a fighter the world seldom sees.
