Tom Lyle

On September 25, 2019, Tom Lyle, my brother-in-law, experienced an unexpected brain aneurysm which immediately put him in a coma and Intensive Care.  After surgery and extensive efforts to make him regain consciousness, a MRI revealed that he had permanent and substantial brain damage.   

Sadly, this intense eight week long journey to save Tom ended with his death on November 19, 2019 and left his wife, Sue, with staggering medical bills despite insurance. 

All funds will go directly to help her with this unexpected debt which mounts daily as the bills from various doctors and two separate hospitals keep coming. 

Tom loved Sue very much and almost everyone who knew Tom, knew about Sue because he talked about her constantly.  He would not have wanted her to live with this burden hanging over her head.  Your donation would honor Tom by helping the person he loved most in this world, his beloved wife, Sue.
