Chris Witwer is a Warrior: His story, his words #WitwersWarriors

Editor’s Note: Chris Witwer is fighting for his life….against a rare disease. There is a benefit being thrown for him on Sunday, May 17th.  I invited Chris to share his story with you.


Written by: Chris Witwer

My story begins in Sept 2001 a few days before 911. I was playing golf with some friends and I started coughing up blood while on the course. Being 22, and invincible I didn’t think much of it.
That night I went home and noticed that my urine was a dark reddish brown color. Still being 22 and invincible and feeling fine I didn’t think much of it. I ignored both symptoms. Read more ›

I am amazed by the amount of anger, currently on Facebook.

Instead of looking at some real issues regarding a man who suffered a broken neck, nearly severed spine, while in police custody, poverty, lack of education– we look at the easiest, which is race. Read more ›

Yesterday, 9 year-old Valory Newton, underwent life-changing surgery.  She is doing well, the procedure went “text book”.  She now has a “nubby” after the amputation of her lower left leg.

Valory requested Mac and Cheese and to see her new ‘nubby’.  Her spirits are high, as always.

Now for the part where we can do something special.

Last month, Larry Wnorowski, who is a wheelchair-bound and paralyzed Vietnam Veteran, was viciously attacked by dogs during a trip to the store. The incident happened 10 feet from his front door, after his neighbor’s dogs got loose. Larry received bites on his stomach, arm, leg and fingers.. leaving his only functional hand in jeopardy.

On Sunday, April 19th, The Sylvania Community Arts Commission held the 2015 Shorties.  The Shorties are a Film Competition for children, between K through 8th Grade.  This unique celebration was the third and final day of the Tree City Film Festival.

I am proud to be on the TCFF committee and the Chairperson for The Shorties.  2015 was the third year for the Tree City Film Festival and was the biggest.   It was held in the Sylvania’s Historic Village, inside the Train Barn.

It is NW Ohio’s Premiere Film Festival.

I wanted to share with you the submissions from our future filmmakers.  From Elmore, Whiteford, Waterville, Toledo, Sylvania and others– the love of making movies crosses all zipcodes in Northwest Ohio.

As a parent of four athletic children;, we have baseball, soccer, basketball, travel teams and tournaments. There are even travel dance teams now… but nothing for the creative ones. No competitions, nor celebrations for those who dare to dream..

It those creative people, that are changing the world.   The Shorties isn’t just about making movies, it’s about supporting those that dare to see the world differently.   Giving our children a moment of encouragement to dream.   Read more ›
