Help a teacher get heart surgery

Our friend Tim Milton is in need of lifesaving heart surgery. He has been a dedicated elementary school teacher in South Korea for over a decade, and is an amazing person to boot. When he's not teaching, his traveling the world and bringing those experiences back to his classroom. Unfortunately, he's now in need of a triple bypass. On top of that, he has an aneurysm on on of his arteries, making his heart a ticking timb bomb. His native Canada won't be able to treat the condition for over 6 months, so having the surgery in Korea is the only option. While he has health insurance, it will only cover half of a very expensive surgery and recovery. To top it off, the hospital will not perform the operation until they have cash in hand. He has managed to gather a significant chunk of the money himself, but it coming up short.  His savings are minimal because he has been supporting his elderly mother for the past 6 years.   As we all know, teachers world wide are not treated on the same level as other skilled professionals. Tim's choice of career is unfortunatly putting his life in jeopardy. Please help us support a great friend and teacher by giving him another 50 years!
