Defeat Melanoma

I am writing this story for my coach, co-worker, & friend, Tim Kolsrud. Tim has supported me at many different stages of my life & continues to be an inspiration to me and to others.

A few years ago, he had a mole removed from his abdomen; the biopsy was negative. Recently, the mole returned and now has been diagnosed as melanoma. It has spread to a lymph node, but a PET scan shows no metastases to the organs. This makes it a Stage III diagnosis.

Tim is so grateful for the outpouring of support and the love and kindness so many friends have shown him. The words of others gives him strength and motivation to beat this thing. 

He will be in Houston Texas at the MD Anderson Cancer Center for analysis and treatment in the upcoming week(s). Donations will help Tim with his treatment and support him in his care and healing at MD Anderson.

Thank you Tim for everything you have done for me & continue to do for athletes, students, friends, & all those that surround you. You are loved. Fight this, beat this.
