Help for Tim and his family

$1,700 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 2 months
Tim Brandes is my baby brother. On June 14th, he went to the ER for suspected pneumonia. He left there being told he had kidney cancer that had spread to his lungs. After more X-rays and several appointments, he was given a diagnosis on July 2nd. Stage 4 kidney, lung and bone cancer with a fracture already in the left hip.  He began an oral chemo treatment that Friday.
Today, July 11th, he was admitted to hospice care. 
His birthday is July 29th, if he makes it to that day, he'll be 47. 
Sammy, the little guy pictured, is Tim's absolute pride and joy. He is 2 and Tim and Pat were awarded full guardianship of him May 9th. 
And so the hardship begins...we are raising funds to assist Pat in covering the outstanding medical costs along with inevitable funeral costs. The remaining funds will be used to cover the remaining mortgage costs on their home and property. 
Tim's only wish is that Pat be able to raise Sammy in the home they currently share.

There will be a "let's remember Tim" (celebration of life) get-together at Starkey Marina on September 22. We are hoping to have a poker run, raffle, lunch, etc. to help raise some more funds to get land paid for. Just to be accountable, this is how the funds have been used: total received, so far, after fees is $1642.28
-$995 for funeral home
-$270 for Sept land payment
$377.28 remaining

Latest news about my brother, Tim. He fell early this morning and because his pain could not be managed at home, he was transported to Hospice House in Bentonville, Arkansas. As of this evening, there hasn't been any X-rays or scans done to determine if there are any broken bones or other injuries.
Please continue to pray for Tim, Pat, little Sammy and the rest of our family during this time.

A million thank you's to all that have prayed and/or donated! Tim is responding well to the steroids/meds that were prescribed. We've had a great time with out-of-state family making their way to the Ozarks for hot weather, BBQ's and reminiscing! Please continue to pray for our family and share his fundraiser!
