I have to believe the ONLY reason Chris would cancel this far in advance, would have to truly be a compelling one. Now, is it a good reason/bad reason? We may never know but, I unfortunately, agree that this may very well be a serious health issue. Something like that would take a long time to deal with and recover from so it fits, sadly.

If I had to rank what an “unforeseen family matter” is, I’d have to say health issue would have to be in the #1 position. I hope I’m wrong.
