Rest up, Tommy, we'll see you soon

First, thank you for being here. Tommy Rivers and his beautiful family have been a shining light guiding so many through dark times; now is the time to reciprocate and prove that love is, indeed, always the answer.

As some of you may know, almost a month ago, Tommy Rivs was admitted to the ICU with respiratory issues. After several weeks of testing and a lung biopsy, doctors discovered the presence of cancer. Specifically, Tommy Rivers was diagnosed with Primary Pulmonary NK T-Cell Lymphoma, a very rare and aggressive form of Lymphoma. Tommy was moved to a hospital in Scottsdale, AZ, where he is receiving chemotherapy under the guidance and expertise of some of the leading lymphoma physicians in the world.  As you can imagine, this treatment is expensive, and Tommy and his family could use all of the financial support they can get.

Your generosity can help lighten the load, so that he can focus on recovery, as he taught us to do. Your kind donation will go directly to Steph and Tommy to help deal with the financial repercussions of his current condition, so they can focus on healing and supporting one another.

Other ways to help: Because love knows no bounds and neither does Tommy’s heart, even from his ICU bed, he urged us to consider donating to provide emergency assistance to families of the Navajo nation, through an organization that is dear to him, Ajooba' Hasin, Families to Families.
