‘Project Runway’ Star Chris March Out of Coma, but Facing Long Road to Recovery
Chris March, who shot to fame on “Project Runway,” has suffered a major health setback.
A new GoFundMe page says that March was in a “debilitating accident” last summer and spent “many weeks” in a medically induced coma.
Despite a “miracle of modern science,” he is still in a “fragile state,” facing limited mobility and medical costs.
“His right arm has been paralyzed and at this moment, has limited use of his hands and legs,” states his GoFundMe page. “In addition, he's dealing with respiratory issues that demand constant care. With skyrocketing medical bills, his health insurance has maxed out and he's in desperate need of continuous physical therapy in order to get back on track.”
March appeared on “Project Runway” Season 4, as well as “Project Runway All Stars.” He even had his own show on Bravo called “Mad Fashion.”
In more recent years, he has made cameos on “The Real Housewives of New York” as a friend of Sonja Morgan.
Andy Cohen shared the news about Chris, while urging fans to donate. He wrote on Twitter, “Chris March, the lovable, wonderful, talented alum of Bravo's 'Project Runway' and 'Mad Fashion' is in bad shape and needs our help with his medical care. Anything you can give to help is appreciated.”
