On February 12, 2004, Tom Wieser was diagnosed with State 2/C Rectal Cancer. On that day, the husband and father of four young children began his battle with this horrible disease. After a year of aggressive treatment including chemo, radiation and surgery, the cancer metastasized and spread to his lungs. Tom was given two years to live.
Tom Wieser aggressively fought this cancer and willingly opted for any kind of treatment possible that would extend his life long enough to see his children grow. Tom defied all the odds and the doctors were baffled by the simple fact that Tom continued to live.
After more than nine years of battle, this insipid disease finally wore Tom's body out. On Monday, May 13th, Tom Wieser passed away surrounded by his wife, four children, mother, father and family dog.
Our hope for this effort is to continue to raise enough money to provide for the payment of all medical bills that were accumulated in order to keep Tom Wieser alive longer than anyone ever predicted. We want to help ease the horrible financial burden that this disease has had on the family.
Years ago, Tom and his wife Heidi created a foundation to nurture other families who are battling this disease. The Me One Foundation has sent thousands affected by cancer on a free vacation where they are able to get away from the day to day realities of battling their disease. Tom and Heidi, along with their four children, devoted their lives to helping other families rather than try to draw attention to their own needs for financial assistance.
This account was created through a collaborative effort by those who have been touched by the unwavering faith and love demonstrated by the Wieser family over the past nine years. We continue raise funds in order to honor Tom's memory. We want to provide for the family and try to ease their tremendous burden just a little bit.
