May Caregiver of the Month – Chrissy

I feel like the luckiest sister in the world to have been given the gift of a best friend the day my brother was born. Growing up we were always extremely close so it was just natural for me to become his primary caretaker. I never would have imagined the trials and tribulations, the exhaustion and sleepless nights, the hardships – mentally, physically, financially – and the sacrifices and we would face along the way but I would do it a million times over for him. Being his caretaker is by no means easy but I want him to live his best life and experience all the world has to offer while he is still able. While he may not understand the magnitude of what he has given me, he is the real hero in this brother/sister duo.

Thank you Chrissy for sharing your story with the Christopher Smith Foundation.
