About Christopher

Christopher Miles was an accomplished student and athlete who graduated from North Gwinnett High School in 2019.  One week after his graduation, Christopher suffered a seizure which led to the diagnosis of a stage 4 glioblastoma brain tumor.   

Following his diagnosis, Christopher underwent surgery and then 32 days of  radiation then went on to attend the Georgia Southern University while managing the affects of chemotherapy.  His bravery and determination to live life to the fullest was astounding.  Throughout his treatments, Christopher exemplified strength and courage that served as an inspiration to all around him.  Christopher's battle ended on May 25th, 2020.

Chistopher's life, while short, was eventful.  A star on the football field and basketball court, an exceptional student and an amazing friend to all.  He will always be remembered by those who loved him by many nicknames; The Deputy, The Tank, The Legend, CMiles, Toph, but most people simply refer to him as Our Friend Christopher.   

Christopher was an hero to many, and an inspiration to all.
