Bill “Bee” Thoma Medical Fund

William “Bee” Thoma  has been diagnosed with Lymphoma. The money raised will be used to cover urgent chemo treatment and possible bone marrow transplant. In addition he needs to see the specialist and cover the cost out of pocket. 

A little more about Bee: 
The father of two was born in Butler, Pennsylvania, a small town with an extraordinary gymnastics tradition.
His daughter Karissa  describes him as the kindest and most generous man, as thousands of gymnasts and coaches can attest to. 

Bee received a gymnastics scholarship to Georgia Southern University and graduated with a BS in Education, majoring in Physical Education. After college he went to work with Athletes in Action, an athletic ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.

Over 30 years ago, he started New Hope gymnastics, after the  1984 Olympics. One of the gyms biggest achievements is the number of college scholarships awarded to student athletes.
