Operation Kill Tim's Cancer

As most of you may know, our dad has been fighting Colorectal cancer for the past two years now. After many rounds of chemo and radiation, the cancer is unfortunately still present and has even grown more. The doctors have exhausted all their options other than a major surgery to remove the area in which the cancer is residing, which we were hoping he would not have to have. Unfortunately, this is where we are at. Our dad will be undergoing this 10+ hour surgery on December 19th, at the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Tulsa. 

Dad had to retire from teaching at Southwest High School this past May, after teaching there for 34 years. Thankfully, he still has insurance, but it unfortunately has a higher monthly payment and an extremely high deductible in which he will have to pay again. We are trying to raise money to help with this unfortunate burden as well as the costs that come with the stay at the cancer center for the next month of recovery. 

If any of you know our dad, you know he is not one to ask for help. He has always been the type to stay quiet and just get things done. So we are asking for your help as his daughters. He is the most caring man who has continued to work at his church as well as run his own business building people custom one of a kind furniture and art, post retirement. He is a wonderful man with one last shot at kicking this cancer's butt. 

We truly appreciate anything that you can give to help elminate the financial stress that he will have post surgery while he is going through his recovery. Please also continue to pray for him and the huge life changes that will take place post operation. 

Thank you again for all your support,

Amy & Sarah
