Beat chemo and almost exactly 2 months later married the man of my prayers who stood by my side during the whole process. Still can’t stop staring at this 😭 pic.twitter.com/ZrDvTy878a

Chris Wesseling GoFundMe
A Go Fund Me had been set up to help in his cancer treatment.
The Page reads;
NFL writer, husband, father and friend to many, has had a relapse and cancer is trying yet again to have its way. While we know Chris and his ace cornerman Lakisha (and Lincoln, their newborn son) will beat this – AGAIN – the last thing they need is to worry about bills. While we can’t solve everything, let’s do what we can to help them out. Let’s make sure they know WE HAVE THEIR BACK.
I’ve set a $5,000 target. I’d love it if we blew this out of the water. UPDATE: We did just that, in less than 48 hours! I’ve updated the target to $10,000. YOU GUYS ROCK.
All the funds will simply be sent over to Lakisha and Wess. If you can give a little, give a little. If you can give more, even better. And if you can’t do anything, feel free to just share this on social or with your friends, etc.
These guys have friends and fans everywhere – let’s show them what we can do.
