Tim's Lost Battle with GI Cancer

In November 2016 Tim, my husband and friend of 20 years, found out through a routine colonoscopy he had Anal Margin cancer and underwent chemo and radiation at Southcoast Medical Group in Fairhaven, Mass.  Months later Tim's new oncologist at Dana Farber Cancer Institute discovered GI cancer which can be managed but not cured. Tim worked from when he was 10 years old, delivering papers in his hometown of Easton. He then moved on to work in a local auto repair business, and eventually to Precision Door and Window in Stoughton.  Then he founded his own successful window and door business which he ran for almost 10 years. Unfortunately we lost Tim in September 2017 after he fought so bravely. 

We’re asking for $20,000 because while Tim was covered under my insurance policy at my job, the policy did not cover all his medical bills, and he had no life insurance. 

I'm grateful for any amount you can donate to help pay for Tim's funeral and medical expenses and help me stay in our home.

Thank you - Joan
