Our friend and valued community member has been diagnosed with cancer. Your help is needed to cover medical expenses.

Here is a letter from Tim:

My dear, dear friends,
I trust that you all had a wonderful holiday season!

Ours was dampened a bit as I had surgery to remove a hazel nut-sized tumor from my throat about 5 days before Christmas. To say the least, it put a little bit of a hardship into trying to sell records – both before and after the surgery. 

I wish that I had good news to share about the outcome of the operation, but it wasfound to be cancer and the doctor was not able to get it all. That means that beginning very shortly; I will have to undergo radiation and possibly chemotherapy treatments to get rid of what’s left – and in the meantime, hoping that it hasn’t spread elsewhere. 

I do not share this with you to gain sympathy, because I don’t deserve it. I share it with you because you are my friends and so that you will all know what is going on with me and to dismiss any “odd” goings-on at Groovacious or with the Cretsingers in general. I just don’t want you to be in the dark.

I don’t know what will be happening to Groovefest or the store, but we will keep marching forward, as we always have, in order to help make Cedar City an awesome place to be. 

I know that with all of your thoughts, prayers and good wishes, everything will work out just fine. If I didn’t have the financial part to think about, I’d only have half the worry; but I’m confident that all will work out for the best in the end - I have a few friends who have gone before me on this type of journey and I consider them my true heroes.

Please don’t be a stranger. Please come into the store and say hi to Lisa and me now and then - maybe even buy something from us. The more we see you, the less alone we’ll feel…

I’ll try to keep you posted as much as I can any on progress and how we’re coming along. Oh, and if you can share this, someone I know who is not necessarily my Facebook "friend" may also see it.

Much love to all of you, thanks for your friendship and I hope to see you soon!!
