Ashtyn's Memorial Scholarship

On December 23rd 2017, my brother Tim had a hemorrhagic stroke( a 2 inch in diameter brain bleed that caused a stroke). He was rushed to the hospital where the neuro-surgeons performed brain surgey to remove the blood and relieve the pressure on his brain. December 24th, Tim had a second stroke on the opposite side of his brain. At this point, with bilateral strokes, the Tim that we all knew and loved no longer existed. The brain damage was too extensive. As the hours crept on and Christmas came and went, the neurologist performed an apnea test on Tim on December 26th. With zero response , at 11:55pm Tim was pronounced brain dead.
Tim was a very generous, giving man. Although he didn't have much, he always gave anything he had to anyone in need. True to his character, Tim donated his organs on the early morning of the 28th.
His heart, liver, kidneys, corneas, bone marrow, tendons, and even his skin went out into the world saving many lives and making others more comfortable. That's truly who Tim was... a giver, a single man with a huge heart.
Ashtyn is Tim's 14 year old daughter. She is a freshman in high school, and in the blink of an eye she will be ready to head off to college. She is just like Tim in that education comes easy for her; she is taking many advanced classes and involved in programs that challenge her abilities. There is no doubt that she will be successful in any avenue she chooses to persue.
Tim put much of what he had towards furthering Ashtyn's education. This memorial scholarship is to honor Tim and to pick up where He left off. Anything donated will be held and invested by Ashtyn's Aunt Lisa to help provide for Ashtyn's education and her promising future.
Please consider making a donation in Tim's name to help his daughter go to college.
All my love and gratitude,
Lisa
