Thomas Fink Fundraiser

$4,595 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 152 people in 45 months
I'm quite sure many of you are aware of the conflict that happened this morning afflicted with Lecanto High School. I am setting up a fundraiser for Thomas Fink to aleive some of the financial monetary problems regarding his surgery. His family is in devastation and we are trying to help them as much as possible in regards of paying for medical bills. Anything helps even if it's only one dollar. Every donation is much appreciated and prayers are needed.

Update on Tommy: Good news from the doctor!! He was able to open one eye, wiggle his toes, and move his legs on his own! He gave a thumbs up and a peace sign with both hands! His pupils are working and dilating, and the second ct scan showed no further signs of swelling. Keep him in your prayers!

In close contact with his family members, perceiving they are aware of the fundraiser and are overly excited and amazed of this opportunity. As of now the funds are being accumulated. When his family members are comfortable enough they will withdraw all of the money and use it for Thomas and his surgery. Thank you guys so much for your generosity as well as the prayers being received for Thomas. God bless all of you.

I wish i was able to help monetarily. But i can offer my support. Thomas, it gets better. Ive been through it all. Its never the answer to use a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Ik youre only a freshman but by the time you graduate you wont know or remember any of the mean high school cliques. It gets better. Take up art or other outlet to relieve your anger and depression. Other then self-inflicting pain on yourself and suicide attempts. Trust me. It works. It will all be better. When you are healed or youre able to function on your own please feel free to find me on facebook. I am all ears if you need to vent and if you need peer support. I am a strong advocate on suicide and i will not sleep at night if it means helping just one person out of suicide because its never the answer. And i am willing to do that for you sweetheart.

Seems "everyone" is forgetting this kid brought a loaded firearm on school property. Which is a federal offense! He should be charged accordingly to the law in which he broke. It was a criminal act and pre-meditated with the intent to harm others. You don't commit suicide in public, and usually there is a note left behind. There are other ways to deal being bullied, surely not bringing a loaded weapon to school. Every child was in danger when the gun was pulled out. And to correct a corroborated story, there were 2 shots fired in the classroom. Wake Up!

I am praying for you all. The silver lining in all this is once he recovers he will see all the love and prayers this community has for him and hopefully never feels helpless or lonely again. It's pretty clear you are loved Thomas. You will forever be in my heart. Best wishes on a full recovery.

My heart goes out to you young man and your parents. Focus on getting better and know that you are never alone despite the fact that it may feel that way. You are being given a second chance at life. God has a purpose for you to be here to help other people who feel like you. Your parents love you and as a parent my heart truly breaks for you and your family young man. Stay strong son you are meant for something better in this world. When you try to commit suicide you are ending your pain however those you left behind are shattered. Reach out to someone in your life. You are very lucky young man to receive a second chance at life.
