Thomas's I-Will-Beat-Cancer Fund

$8,387 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 28 months
My name is Thomas Eversole, I'm 35 years old and married to a wonderful woman named Kaytlyn.  I'd still consider myself a newlywed since we just got married August 2015.


We do not have any children.  (my brother's awesome kids are in the picture above)

I'm active in my family life, my relationship with God and writing music.  I've published quite a few albums and my faith reflects my art.  (My current project Orationem might be very heavy musically, but the lyrics to Christ are very bold.)

On December 21st 2015, I had a colonoscopy because of frequent/urgent bathroom trips.  The procedure found a 2.5" mass which was biopsied and shown to be cancerous.  A PET scan further indicated that the cancer is localized to my rectum and intestine walls (Thank God it hasn't spread!) but the doctor stated that I will be fighting this for at least a year.

The current plan is 6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation (which I'm currently almost halfway through), then a rest period, then surgery to remove the cancer (late march / early april) followed with at least 6 more months of chemotherapy/radiation. 

I've heard stories of people who get a diagnosis and then "give up".  I want to fight, but I need help.  Cancer is expensive - even with good health insurance, especially when it entails at least a year-long medical plan.  I'm so blessed to still be employed, and my employer is working with me regarding my medical needs, but my doctor has recommended that I only work 20-25 hours a week.  With the fatigue and other symptoms that come with treatment, sometimes even working that is overwhelming.

Even if you're reading this and cannot donate, please keep me in your prayers.  Anything given to me, I'll apply to my treatments.  If I'm given more than I need, I'll use it to help someone else with their fight with cancer.

Thank you very much for your thoughts and prayers and any support given.  My long term goal is to beat this, so my wife and I can start a family!

God bless,

I've got to do my prep today and then surgery is tomorrow morning. I'm nervous about it, but I think being nervous before surgery is normal.

Among the anxiety I feel, I am grateful for the medical options, prayers/support and the hope that this will improve my quality of life.

Luckily, the strength I have comes from the One who's very, very strong. (Philippians 4:13)

I had a follow up cat scan to my chest, which showed everything as normal, so that's good!

Today is the day for the Flexible Sigmoidoscopy and I will be put under for this procedure.

I have a few pre-op appointments and then the surgery April 20th. I appreciate any and all prayers!

Thank you,

Again, I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. 6 radiation treatments left until my "break" before surgery. Thank goodness! I got a temporary break from chemo due to the side effects becoming a little too intense, but I'm hanging in there!

As mentioned to everyone via e-mail, the bracelets my family financed are in. They'll be sending out this next week. I'm so grateful for everyone that has my back during this trying time of my life!

Thank you so much everyone for your support and contributions! I'm so grateful to have an excellent friend and family network to help me through this!

As a small token of my gratitude, I've decided to make some instrumental classical piano music I wrote and recorded about 9 months ago as free to download. Its 8 tracks, around 30 minutes of piano and should be obvious I really like Chopin. HAHA!

You can listen to and download that music here:

Thank you all again, and God Bless,
