Help Tom Beat Ewing's Sarcoma

After experiencing severe back pain for two weeks, Tom went for an MRI at Brigham & Women's Hospital on October 21st.  Four days later Tom's doctors determined the pain was the result of a tumor growing on Tom's spine and he was diagnosed with a rare and fast moving cancer called Ewing's Sarcoma.  Tom's doctors have prescribed a very aggressive treatment plan which includes 6 months of Chemo and radiation to reduce and ultimately eradicate the tumor.  While Tom's prognosis is positive, we expect his bills and related out of pocket expenses to exceed $100,000.  Our goal is for Tom to beat this and come out healthy in 6 months without a mountain of debt as he starts his new family with his beautiful and amazingly supportive wife Kristin.  Please help us hit our goal of raising $100,000 for Tom!

Not sure what to donate?  Please consider sponsoring 1 week of Uber rides for Tom.  Tom will be taking Uber to and from his home in Charlestown to Brighham & Women's Hospital.  We expect this could cost up to $200 per week.  Of course, no amount is too big or too small.  Our family greatly appreciates any amount you can contribute.
