Shark Tank Memorial Fund

This past Sunday afternoon our Shark Tank family was completely devastated by the sudden death of the shows lead accountant, Iain Anderson.

It was just recently that Iain was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, which is one of the most aggressive and feared forms of cancer, with life expectancy limited to just months in over 90% of cases. Unfortunately, Iain's prognosis was no exception, with his doctors assigning him just months to live.

Iain's family was always his number #1 priority. He worked as hard as he did for as long as he did to ensure his two young daughters, Casey who is 16, and Brynn who just had her 18th birthday in July, would be well provided for when the time came that he could no longer fight off the cancer.

Unfortunately, Iain didn't get the opportunity to live out that timeline the Dr's had assigned him. Just recently Iain and his doctors decided to proceed with the only surgical option available for advanced stage mesothelioma. If successful, the surgery would have added months to the original timeline given to him. The surgery took place just over two weeks ago, and according to updates from Iain and his family, the surgery was a success, and he appeared to be on the road to recovery.

Sadly things took a very drastic turn for the worse this past weekend as we received an update from Iain's family letting us know he had been put on life support Saturday evening.

The next update we received was that Iain had passed away peacefully at 2:10 pm Sunday, September 10th.

Now his longtime friends here at Shark Tank want to help his family thru this incredibly difficult time. In addition to asking for your prayers, we also ask that you please donate money if you can. Taking just a portion of the financial burden off his family's shoulders during this difficult time will no doubt be the most effective thing we can do for Iain's family.

100% of this funding drive will go directly to the family to help cover burial and medical expenses that they are now left with.

The Direct Bebeneficiary of the funds will be  Claire Godden. 

Claire represents the family as Iains ex-wife and will by the recipient of the donation on the family's behalf. 

Thanks in advance.
