The two best friends found themselves with a deep appreciation for life, and wanted to do what they could for those less fortunate than themselves.
They founded a non-profit organization designed to help other students with serious medical conditions to use video games and virtual reality technology to experience things that they would normally never get the chance to.
It is an amazing movement, and already so many young people have had happiness brought back into their lives thanks to their selfless work.
Chris and Dillon became even closer as they entered high school, and Dillon began dating his best friend's sister. Unfortunately, after a battle against severe mental health issues, she took her own life in 2014.
The pair were devastated. They both lost someone incredibly close to them, but they knew now was the time when they needed each other more than ever.
Three years later, it seemed that things were beginning to get better. But now, life has taken another cruel turn.
The cancer suddenly returned and in full force. The doctors only gave Chris a year to live, and neither him nor Dillon are wasting any time.
They have a plan to do all the things that they wanted to get done in life, and little by little they have started to check them off the list.
