Help Tim fight his cancer!

In 2015 our long time friend Tim Burles discovered he has Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia which he was managing quite well. Then in December, 2017 he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He has decided not to have the surgery but wants to use naturopathic methods to fight this horrible disease.  His life changes have included following a ketogenic diet, stopping alcohol and tobacco, using herbal tinctures for tumors and lymphatic cleansing and hemp oil for it's high antioxidant properties. To his credit, Tim has embraced this new program and as a result his last checkup was VERY encouraging. His white blood cell count has improved 300% and the bladder tumors are static. He would like to add IV Vitamin C therapy. Because of his illness, he has not been able to work at his mobile piano tuning business and consequently his car payments, insurance and registration is behind. TIm has spent 30 years travelling to rural communities to tune for clients that would have no other way to enjoy their pianos. Many of you will know Tim as a talented musician that played with many bands including The Free Beer Band, The Burles Brothers and Larry Lee Vannetta and more. Tim has backed up many recording musicians and volunteered for countless fund raising campaigns. Now he needs your help. His medications are several hundreds of dollars monthly and to be able to travel to the city for costly IV infusions, he needs to get his car back on the road.  He needs your support as soon as possible because bladder cancer can be  very fast growing.
