On the night of Monday, October 16th, 2017, around 9:30pm, Tim was senselessly shot in the chest while walking his dog, Heather. His dog was able to get away, however Tim was not. The bullet fractured several ribs, missed his heart, hit his lungs, then traveled to his shoulder and fractured his scapula, leaving him in critical condition. The incident occurred in the alley near his home, near the intersection of Cherokee St. and Oregon Avenue in St. Louis, MO. He did not know his attacker, nor was anything taken from him. There is still no known motive for the shooting, nor is there any information on a suspect.
Tim is very lucky to have survived, and even more so to be improving as quickly as he is. While there are many things to be grateful for in this situation, there are also many unknowns that lie ahead. Hospital bills are already piling up, and will only continue to do so as he is likely to need several months of therapy following his release from the hospital.
Please help him out by donating anything you can. All proceeds will go to Tim to pay for medical bills, and to help keep his house up and running while he is recovering.
