Tom Bayliss's Medical Fund

Hello friends and family! As some of you know, our brother, uncle, and brother-in-law Tom Bayliss has been diagnosed with a genetic and advanced form of colon cancer. He has been losing large amounts of weight and the doctors have told him that he needs to take action immediately. Although his cancer is advanced, it is currently centralized in his colon so the doctors are optimistic regarding his treatment and subsequent recovery. However, he will have to undergo a massive surgery to have his large colon fully removed and will then have to have go through chemo and radiation. This will likely leave him unable to work for a full year and bedridden for a major portion of his recovery. As his medical bills are piling up, so are his monthly general bills. Since he is unable to work at this time, and likely for the next year, these expenses have quickly eroded his savings. He also has two dependent children under his roof that he provides for, ages 20 and 17. The doctors have said he needs to have the surgery as soon as possible in order to ensure the cancer does not spread.
   So, my family is raising money in order to help Tom pay his medical bills and his monthly obligations that are rapidly piling up at this moment. In addition, it will help him put food on the table for himself and his children during his time of treatment and recovery.  Any amount that you can spare is more than appreciated. 
   If you are unable to donate at this time, we completely understand. We ask though that everyone lift him up in your prayers. Please pray for a full recovery, for his children, and our entire family as we all come together to help during this time.
    Thank you in advance for your prayers and donations! You will never know how much they are appreciated!
- The Bayliss family
