Tommy Tuesday's Medical Expenses

To those who are lucky enough to be part of Tommy Tuesday's (Czuprynski's) enormous tribe, we are reaching out to his incredible network of family and friends so that we can all do whatever we can to help him through this unexpected time.

On Monday, Tommy was diagnosed with an incredibly rare form of cancer called appendiceal carcinomatosis. It is stage 4.

On Tuesday, Tommy's birthday, about 200 strong came together to celebrate with music, laughter, strength, hugs, smiles and bountiful love.

On Friday, Tommy is having emergency surgery to remove his appendix, colon and rectum. Hot chemotherapy followed by recovery will be his next course of action.

Why gofundme? We want to raise funds immediately to help Tommy primarily with his medical expenses, anticipating that his insurance will not come close to covering what will be needed.

Why gofun(d)me? We also want to raise money to give Tommy opportunities to do what he loves! Let's get him to a music festival (or two, or three) this year!

Every single contribution helps so please do whatever you can and forward this to as many people as possible. There is no limit to this goal and it will increase on a regular basis!

Tommy is one of the most beautiful, magnetic, tolerant, engaging and loving people we know so let's support him every way we can and spread the love the way that he does for us every day.
