Help Tim Beat MetasticMelanoma

This is my son Timothy Needham, his wonderful wife Amy, and my beautiful grandchildren Ashley and Casey. My granddaughter Ashley paid a photographer to take this family photo on August 4, 2013 while her Dad was preparing to come back to Boston for another surgery to remove more Metastic Melanoma from his scalp. On May 8th 2013, Timmy's thirty-sixth birthday, he received the pathology reports from his first surgery of April 14, 2013. The lump that was removed from the side of his head was in fact Metastic Melanoma. Since that date Timmy has had 7 additional major surgeries during which 60% of his scalp has been removed . His skull has been shaved with hopes of getting a clear margin so he could start a new gene immune therapy because Chemo and Radiation do not work on this type of cancer. On Christmas eve he received a call from the head of Oncology at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Mass telling him that the cancer has now moved to his chest. The surgeries scheduled for Jan 20th and 25th to remove another Tumor from the side of his head will have to be cancelled until Timmy can start some type treatment on Jan 23rd, 2014.
As a mother this is a difficult situation and the financial burden is taking it's toll on everyone. I am asking you to please help me to help my son save his life . Timmy is doing what ever the Doctors say in order to live, but time is of the essence. Thank you.
