In May 2016, NYPD Sgt Christopher Christodoulou received news that nobody wants to hear – you have a brain tumor. Then the news that it‘s stage 4 glioblastoma and is inoperable. The battle begins.
Chris was surrounded by family and friends when he lost the battle on September 16, 2017. He was willing to try every treatment offered in order to win. He had the love and support of his wife, Melissa, children, Amanda, Brian, and Nicholas, his siblings and their spouses, parents, NYPD family, and so many others. He is our hero and someone we look up to.
We will walk on September 30, 2023, to raise money to find a cure for this disease. Chris’ dedication to his family, courage to continue the fight, and constant smile is only part of what makes him our hero. Please join #TEAMCHRIS.
I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I need your help in this fight. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
