Benefit for Jim Thomas & Family

In September 2014,  Jim Thomas, devoted husband and father of 3, was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer.  Because Jim was experiencing slight dizziness and a tingling sensation on his left side, he saw his doctor who ordered an MRI. A few days later, Jim and his family were told he had a large brain tumor. Eight days later he had surgery; three weeks later they were given the news that it was an aggressive cancer. His family quickly realized that Jim was in for the fight for his life. He started 42 days of chemo and radiation and after that started a 6 month cycle of chemo. He finished treatment in June and was monitored with MRI's every 10 to 12 weeks.  On August 12th, Jim had a clear MRI; however, in  September Jim began to experience tingling on his left side as well as slight paralysis.  In addition, he was having trouble with memory and confusion.  On October 1st, Jim's doctor ordered another MRI. The tumor had come back and was inoperable.  At this time, a clinical trial is not available and Jim is being treated with a medication that hopefully will halt tumor growth.

There has been a tremendous outpouring of support for this amazing family who are typically the first people to offer to help others, but the last people to ask for or accept help. There have been many requests to set up a gofundme page and schedule a benefit for Jim, Misty, and their children. Money raised will go directly to the Thomas family to help pay for medical expenses, bills, etc... 

Specific details about the benefit will be shared soon. Any assistance is truly appreciated. 

Go Team Thomas!!!
