Hughesville locals

By Staff | Mar 27, 2012

Christopher Secules, a graduate of Hughesville High School, son of Tom & Karen Secules, husband of Jennifer Malinovsky and father of Ehlana and Garin Secules is in a unique and unfortunate medical situation. He has a progressive autoimmune disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) that has a consequence of destroying the liver. Recently it has progressed to the point that he needs a liver transplant. If anyone is interested in being screened as a liver donor for Chris, contact him directly at (610) 739-6472 or at tangleman@secules.net.

Please consider these four things before calling: Donors are limited to ages 21 to 49; donors would need to be A+ blood type; Donor’s would need to have a height near 5’6″ and a weight around 150 lbs. The decision must be the donor’s decision with no external influences. Chris is incredibly thankful for any thoughts and/or prayers for him and his family.

Last week I watched an old movie called “Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows”. It is a story about students and nuns who travel across country on a school bus. They were complaining that it cost them $12.40 to fill up the bus with gas. When that movie was made, little did we all know what lay ahead! The latest price I saw this morning was $3.84 per gallon, and that was one of the better prices out there.
