Friends and family I need your help! I am writing this on behalf of my dear friend Tom Orahood.  Anyone that has had the priviledge of knowing Tom has been able to experience his loyalty, sense of humor and strength among many other wonderful traits he has. Tom is by far one of the best people I have had the pleasure of knowing in my life and means a great deal to me and to many of us. He has taught me many wonderful things and helped me more than he probably even knows.

Tragically at the end of March he was diagnosed with advanced stage IV non small cell lung cancer. He is undergoing radiation and chemotherapy to treat the cancer but as you can imagine this is an expensive endeavor and he has had to take leave from work as he fights this battle head on. We as loved ones always want to know what we can do to help him and his family. This is a big part, the financial burden. This fund is to help with the medical expenses insurance won’t cover and living expenses. Along with donations I also ask for a mass amout of prayers for him as he takes on this fight.

I am asking for you to please help by donating what you can. Your donation will help him focus on the road ahead and alleviate some of the anxiety and worry that he is currently experiencing so he can focus all his energy on recovery. 

All donations will be going directly to Tom...
