Katie McDill said her husband, local artist and candlemaker Chris McDill, had hardly any warning signs that he was carrying a golf ball-size tumor on the left side of his brain.

“Last Tuesday, Chris was having some episodes where he had a hard time talking,” McDill said. “The episodes didn’t last long, but we went to see an internist in Macon. He said he thought Chris may have had heat exhaustion but he wanted to do a CT anyway. He was very surprised with what he found.”

After the tumor was discovered, McDill said they left Columbus and headed for University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

“This all happened so quickly,” she said. “We saw the specialist and Chris had his surgery on Friday. They were able to remove all of the tumor. We came home Monday and Chris has been recuperating. We worried he would lose some muscle movement or have problems speaking, but he is doing really well. We will know if the tumor is benign or malignant next Tuesday.”

Although McDill said her husband does have some health insurance, the family’s deductible for the surgery is “a lot of money.” To help offset the McDill’s medical bills, a benefit will be held Saturday night at the Princess Theater.

Memphis band Star and Micey, a Columbus favorite, will be headlining the benefit for the McDill’s.

McDill said she and Chris have formed a friendship over the years with the band and she is “overwhelmed” by the support from her friends and the community.

“It’s overwhelming,” McDill said. “I knew we had friends but I never knew how much people cared about us until this happened. I was literally responding to 75 texts a day while Chris was in the hospital. We are very blessed to have so many people that care about us.”
