Tom Block needs your support

If you are receiving this link, it is because your good friend Tom Block, aka Stu, needs your help. On June 4, Tom was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery because his large intestines ruptured - totally unexpected. There were no symptoms or pre-existing conditions that lead to this. It has been and still continues to be a life threatening and debilitating condition. He has since had two follow-up surgeries and will need at least one more. 

Fortunately, Tom has great medical insurance and is receiving excellent care from medical professionals. Unfortunately, all of his sick time and vacation time have been used up, and it will likely be months before Tom is back at work, thanks to a great boss who is keeping his job safe. This is where his friends come in.

In an effort to take some of the stress of his recovery off of his shoulders, we are hoping you can donate to help Tom with the cost of life, namely his mortgage and bills. Tom, of course, would never seek the financial support of his friends. He is too proud and a more than a bit stubborn. Hence, we didn't tell him we created this page. We are hoping to surprise him with your generosity and kindness.

Thanks for your help!
