Born with a congenital heart defect that required a ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair, Chris underwent his first open-heart surgery at just 11 months old. This initial procedure not only repaired the hole in his heart but also involved the implantation of his first pacemaker. This surgery was the first of four open-heart surgeries Chris would endure. At the tender age of two, Chris faced another daunting diagnosis: acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). For the next three years, he bravely underwent chemotherapy. In 2005, Chris had his first artificial heart valve replacement, adding another significant chapter to his medical journey. During a routine outpatient procedure in middle school, he suffered a stroke, further complicating his health challenges.   Throughout his life, Chris has spent considerable amounts of time in hospitals. During these challenging times, he found solace and joy in television and videos, which helped him navigate the rough days. Despite being told repeatedly that his quality of life would be limited and that he wouldn't be able to do what others could, Chris chose to defy these limitations with humor and resilience.   Determined to bring smiles and laughter into the world, Chris created the persona of the Florida Bushman. With a unique blend of wit and humor, he has dedicated himself to spreading joy and positivity. Chris's story is one of courage, determination, and an unwavering spirit, proving that even in the face of adversity, one can find a way to bring light to others. 📲 Connect with Us!  Explore more about The Tragedy Academy: https://www.thetragedyacademy.com  🌟 Support and Grow With Us 🌟 🎧 Podcasting Made Easy: Build your stunning podcast website with Podpage: Podpage: https://bit.ly/3LSCBh5.  @podpagehq 📲Take your recording to the next level with Riverside.FM: https://bit.ly/3ImjNWD @riverside.fm 👕 Get the Gear Loved Jay's t-shirt from the latest episode?
