However, despite that devastating diagnosis, Chris refused to get down about it. Instead, he decided to spread happiness to all those around him, particularly Logan and Delaney. “I can’t teach them every lesson,” the dad told CBS News in June 2014. “I don’t have enough time. But I can be a good person and they can see that.”

“We’re missing the greatest experience we’ll ever have, ever,” Chris told CBS News. “You always think that people who are dying want to get up early and watch the sunrise. I don’t. I like to sleep – but if my kids get up early, I want that experience,” he added.
