Tommy's Medical Fund

Tom graduated last May from Pittsburg State University with a degree in Biology. After working several odd jobs he found a job in the field which is important and met his needs. Unfortunately, at a general medical check up prior to starting an insurance program with his company it was discovered he had cancer. The chemothrearapy required for treatment means that Tom will not be able to work at his job until the middle of August at the earliest.  Michelle, his wife was working last year in the Lawrence Public School system.  School system work and pay stops in the Summer. Currently, they are living on the meager savings they had accrued which is rapidly depleting. They and their seven year old son are keeping their spirits high and positive while their bank account is dimishing. Any funds raised will go to cover expenses while Tom isn't working and medical bills. We  humbly thank you for your generous support and prayers.
