Tim is being treated at Sara Bush Lincoln Cancer Center for two types of cancer Neuroendocrine carcinoma (favor small cell carcinoma) and Squamous cell carcinoma after detecting a mass in the back of his throat. They did a biopsy and determined the tumor was malignant but after further tests they found it inoperable due to the additional threat of the small cell neuroendocrine cancer that was spreading so rapidly.
He immediately started two types of chemo therapy and will continue with radiation and chemo over the next 10 -12 months. During this time it is likely to get worse before it gets better and therefore he is not able to work, putting the burden of care solely on his wife. This is not sustainable especially with the added cost of medication and trips to the hospital for treatment.
Our hope with this campaign is to help alleviate some of the financial pressures that loss of income and treatment will incur , so that more time can be spent focusing on the important work of healing and beating this cancer!
For those of you that don’t know Tim, his confidence is contagious as well as his laughter. He is hard working and a jack of many trades. His favorite place in the world is on the ocean because it is so humbling. His greatest strength is his will. When he puts his mind to something, it will be done. He is confident he will beat this through the grace of God and with your support we can help him win the FIGHT.
