Chris Dickerson proves he’s a fighter.
2020 has been a trying year for many individuals. With the global health crisis ravaging the world things seem to be bleak. For 1982 Olympia champion Chris Dickerson that is definitely an understatement.
After suffering a heart attack, things seemed uncertain for the bodybuilding legend. Luckily he was able to pull through. However things took a turn for the worse and Chris Dickerson had contracted the virus that has been devastating the globe.
But it appears that there is indeed an upside to this story. Despite the odds, Chris Dickerson has been able to overcome these adversities and is planning to celebrate his birthday on August 25.
Fellow bodybuilder and friend of Chris Dickerson Bill Pearl shared the below on his Facebook page.
CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION
As many of you know Chris Dickerson fell at his home in March of 2020, and suffered a factured hip. After surgery, he experienced a massive heart attack and was put on a ventilator in the ICU. Following several days and failed attempts to bring him off the device, he received a pacemaker.
Surviving this, Chris was moved to a care facility for rehabilitation, where unfortunately, he contracted Covid 19. Again, he won another life-theatening battle.
Proudly, on August 25, 2020, Chris plans to celebrate his 81st birthday. Please help us wish him the Best of Good Wishes for that memorable day….and going forward.
If you would care to drop him a note, his current address is:
1701 N. E, 26TH STREET
WILTON MANOR, FLORIDA
