Jim’s fight against CLL and SLL

Hi my name is Steven Buludis and I am the co-owner of Thassian Mechanical Contractors. I’m writing this to help raise money for one of my employees who was recently diagnosed with Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia and Small Lymphatic Lymphoma. Jim Pemberton was diagnosed with CLL and SLL in November 2018. Anyone who is familiar with the treatment for cancer knows of its astronomical cost and the burden it can put on the family during an already trying time. At the time of his diagnosis he was unfortunately with limited insurance making his situation that much more difficult. Jim’s a devoted husband and father raising four boys whom he loves very much. He was a Pop Warner football coach all through his kids adolescent years. Jim has been a valuable and dedicated employee who has played a huge part in continuing the success of the company. He’s also been a volunteer firefighter with the Wanamassa Fire Company for 38 years. Anybody who knows Jim, knows he is dedicated, selfless and would do anything for others. Now is the chance for us to give back and do something for him. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any donation small or large is greatly appreciated during this trying time. Please keep Jim and his family in your prayers.
