At that time, Tom was admitted into the Peter Lougheed Hospital in Calgary and over the next 7 months he was strong and fought the good fight.
We were overjoyed then to find out that he was in remission and was able to move back to Vancouver to be with us and to start rebuilding his life!
Unfortunately, that lasted just over a year and earlier this month he was informed that the Leukemia was back, and even worse, has become more aggressive this time.
Tom once again has been admitted into hospital and has begun the fight for his life.
He has been through many painful procedures and has now been placed on the bone marrow transplant list.
Tom has always paid his own way through life with no help from anyone. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know and has forever been a person that would give you the shirt off his back and the last dollar he had in his pocket.
But now due to the intense chemotherapy treatments he is unable to work.
With the cost of his medical bills, insurance, medications and the debt still from his last hospitalization, it has all become too much for one person to burden all on their own.
Tom needs your help! He would never ask you for it on his own but as his bestfriend I am asking for him. And with everyone's support, if we can assist him with any kind of donation, big or small, I know it will give him the motivation to fight.
He beat it once before so let's help him do it again!
Words cannot express how grateful Paula, Tarina and myself are for your generosity so thank you in advanced from the bottom of our hearts.
