FINALLY - TREATED FOR SYMPTOMS!

Hello,



My name is Tim Tucker and I am a 46 years old. I love being outdoors, working, and spending time with my family and friends. I became really sick over a year ago and I still have not been diagnosed. I have chills, weight loss, loss of appetite, bone pain, night sweats, shortness of breath, and lymphadenopathy. We are traveling to the Mayo Clinic every 6 weeks for medication trials and testing. The first treatment did not help after 4 weeks.

So we are now being treated for 2 diagnosis. They are treating me for Castleman's Disease and B cell Lymphoma Symptoms. They are using Rituximab and steroids to do this. I started the first infusion last night 11/30/17.

I  finished at 11:30 pm and got back at 2 am to my sister's house in Minneapolis. I will get 4 treatments once a week and the team will monitor my body's response. PLease continue to share for prayers and any donations for travel and medical expenses.

All of our medical and travel expenses are about to be very high. We have insurance and those deductibles are about to start over.  We set our goal high because we know that when you have to do biopsies, labs, scans, surgeries, travel, and medications from the beginning again it adds up so fast.

Thank you for everything and everyone that has supported this journey. We promise to always help when we are able.  Anything you feel like donating - I will be forever grateful. If you can't donate money, please continue to pray and please SHARE my story everywhere. It is so hard to be a nurse and wait for a diagnosis when it is yourself. Thank you for following my journey and continue to pray with me and my family for answers.


Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Sincerely,
Tim and Christi Tucker


(Christi and I were so appreciative of the t-shirt fundraiser/ spray tan fundraiser which we raised a little over 13,000.00. That was the only fundraiser that we did. All of it went to medical payments and some travel. (A PET scan alone is about 8,000.00 and I have had 2, this doesn't even come close to everything else). Being the kind of people we are, we hated to do another fundraiser - but we also thought I would be diagnosed by now. There is a huge sense of urgency to raise as much as possible = as soon as possible. PLEASE SHARE!)
