For the love of Tom Hoobyar

Hello friends,

Thank you for taking a moment to come here.

Kimi Avary and Duncan Cleminshaw are raising money for our dear friend and mentor, Tom Hoobyar (with permission from Tom & Vikki).  

Tom was recently diagnosed with metastatic pancreatic cancer.  In Western medicine, this still typically amounts to a death sentence.   

Not for Tom.

Years ago, when Duncan\'s Mom was battling throat cancer, someone wise said, \"When they tell you they can 
A) cut you, 
B) poison you 
C) burn you (to make you better) 
ask for  Plan D!\"

Fortunately, Tom has a \"Plan D\" that has taken he and his wife, Vikki, to a a very well-regarded cancer clinic in Mexico.   Tom is back in Reno now slugging it out after some intense treatment and is grateful for every prayer, healing thought and good wish you can send.

As you already know, this kind of care is not covered by insurance.  This is where each and every one of you reading this now can make a real and immediate difference for this man we all love and to whom we owe so much.

When we started to set this donation page up, we had a funny realization:

If Tom had a nickel for every person he\'d helped...
every NLP Cafe he\'d hosted...
every desperate call or email to which he\'d responded in the wee hours...
every powerful yet gentle bit of counsel he\'d offered...
every bear hug he\'d given...
there\'d be no need for donations now.  

But, of course, that\'s because every bit of himself he\'s given to us all these years, he\'s given for free, and given with love.

We\'re asking you now to help us give back.  Our goal is to reach 2000 people who will donate $50 each.  We will ABSOLUTELY accept ANYTHING you can share.  

Every donation through this page goes directly to Tom and Vikki\'s PayPal account to use for Tom\'s care.

One other way you can help Tom, is to send the link to this page to everyone you know in the NLP, healing or hypnosis communities.  Because of Tom, NLP Cafes can be found around the world.  There are thousands of people we need to reach.  Please help us reach them by sharing this.

We have also set up a Facebook page, open to all, called Tom\'s Healing Journey.  There you\'ll find Vikki\'s posts on Tom\'s progress.  We invite you to join and share a story of how Tom has helped you, or your own story of healing.  

We are grateful you\'ve come.  For those of you who\'ve already donated, thank you for your generosity, and for keeping Tom in your heart.

For the love of Tom,

Kimi & Duncan
