Tom Kammer's medical fund
We love you two. Hang in there. We're with you all the way. Many, many prayers coming your way.
On October 14, 2015, after not feeling well for a couple of months, weight loss of 25+ pounds, and out of control blood sugars, Tom had an ultrasound done on his pancreas. The doctor called later that day with a preliminary diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. He was seen at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN the next day by 2 GI doctors and surgeon who confirmed the diagnosis.
The good news is that it appears that Tom is in the lucky 10% who have a fighting chance!
But fighting isn't going to come cheap. Tom will be going through chemo and a rough surgery. There will be medical expenses, hotel expenses, gas, missed days of work, getting family here and there, and more that will come up.
Tom adds so much to each of our lives with his "little witticisms", his hospitality, his music, his (mostly) fine cooking and his friendship. We'd like to offer each of you the opportunity to give back to him.
If you are like us, you are probably wondering what you can do and how you can help Tom and Brenda. This seems the simplest way for us all to pull together for them. Then Tom & Brenda will be able to use your kind gifts however they need to in Tom's fight against the stupid cancer.
Your gifts of $10 or $20 (or more!) will add up, relieve the stress of financial worries and will be so very, very much appreciated.
They are back to Mayo tomorrow.
