Tim Lane's fight against Clyde
A thousand pokes and prods and chest tumor later, a diagnosis was made: a Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma called Primary Mediastinal B Cell lymphoma.
No one saw this coming. But who ever does?
Doctors came up with a plan to get rid of Clyde(more on that later).
The treatment for Clyde is 6 doses of chemo over 18 weeks. Followed by a month of radiation. The regimen is called R-CHOP + RT. I like to call it Karate chop.
However his treatment is not completely covered by insurance
To help cover the costs of treatment, I am raising funds so they have one less thing to worry about during his treatment. I would like to try and reach $3000 but any amount would be great appreciated.
In addition, Once the goal is reached I will shave my head in solidarity with Tim as he undergoes his chemo and radiation.
Together let's beat cancer's butt!
If you are wondering where Clyde comes from, think Pac Man ghosts. They named his tumor Clyde.
Tim is PacMan, and Clyde you're going down.
Thank you for your time and support!
I have a challenge for everyone....
If we all can double the funds Jess has raised then Jessica can keep her hair.
24 hours let's try!
Let's go everyone!
Only $310 until we hit $5k!
I wonder if we could make that mark by Thursday? Hmmmmmm
Let's make it all y'all!
Tim has gone through his first chemo round of 6 and gotten a second opinion for treatment. Feeling tired but still pushing through with the love and support of Bayli, his amazing wife(I'm a little biased since she's my best friend).
Anywho we are one week from the head shaving so feel free to keep the donations rolling in!
Thanks again everyone!
This is incredible, and I wish I could hug each and everyone of you!
As mentioned before, I won't be shaving my head until the 23rd, but I wanted to give some back story as to why I reached out to Sally Marchand Collins to shave my head. How I know Sally begins when I was around 10; my mom and Sally were on the same cycling team. I also worked for Sally at her Aveda salon, Sundance SalonSpa. Her late husband, Pete, had his own battle with lymphoma over 10 years ago. He unfortunately succumbed to his disease, but he has lived on in Sally's strength and fortitude. Since then, she has raised who knows how much money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and coached many people(including myself) for America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride, a 100 mile bicycle ride around Lake Tahoe. She continues to inspire other daily, a day maker you could call her. So it only felt right to reach out to her for this, and I am very grateful she responded with an "of course!"
So tune in to Facebook on March 23rd around 3pm... whatever time Indiana is on.
Donations are still being accepted, so don't feel like because we hit the goal we can't be overachievers!
Thank you everyone again for restoring some faith in humanity.
