Tom-Sue Zeiders Relief Effort

Tom Zieders with his grandkids: (right to left) Ethan, Calie, Mitchell, and month and a half old Liam. Tom is married to Sue Zeiders and has three kids- TJ, Andy, and Cheyenne-who have children of there own.

May of 2016, Tom Zeiders was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. By the time it was discovered the cancer was already spread to his lymph nodes and his right femur bone. In November of 2017, after going through multiple chemo treatments, Tom's doctor gave him his final prognosis of 3 to 6 months to live.

Tom was forced to retire from his job as a sergeant with the D.O.C. when he was giving his initial diagnosis. A portion of the expenses were covered, however many of the deductible costs and other expenses not covered, quickly accumulated .

Tom's daughter, Cheyenne will be getting married in January and those expenses need to be covered as well. Tom and his family could use a humble donation in order to lighten the burden of this unimaginably devastating situation.

My name is Josh Berkheimer, and I've known Tom, or Sarge, for over 10 years. As an inmate under Tom's Authority, I have come to know Tom as a dear friend. He has always shown me nothing but respect and compassion throughout my own tragic life ordeal. Now I am trying to return the favor for his willingness to professionally treat myself and many others like people rather than subhumans.

I have never done a fundraiser page before, but hope it will yield the help Tom and his family could desperately use at this point. Anyone who would like to contact me personally for any reason regarding Tom's story, I'm on Facebook under Josh Berkheimer, or you can email me at [email redacted]

Tom, his family, and myself, want to thank everybody in advance for your compassion, understanding, and generosity.
