In late 2011, our good friend, Tim, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. Those who know Tim know him to be a loving husband, a good friend, and a proud father of two young children 5 and 7. Now, we all know people who have been ill, people who have faced tough times. And we all know there are generally two kinds of sufferers – the vocal; for the entire world to hear: and the silent; that just get on with it, focusing on what’s important and not wanting to be a burden. Tim is in the silent camp. And now we would like to help him out by giving him a “Silent Helping Hand.”
THE BACK STORY: For those unclear on the details, Tim’s battle to date has involved major surgery and extended bouts of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He is currently having more chemotherapy and radiation treatment for a secondary cancer. The extended hospital stays and the treatment regime has taken its toll on the family; both emotionally and financially. And that’s where we come in - we are giving them a “Silent Helping Hand.”
SO, WHAT’S THIS ABOUT? Money, basically; we’re raising money. At a time like this the last thing anyone should have to worry about is money. This time should be about family, about spending time together, and about focussing on the positive.
HOW ARE WE GETTING $$$: Two ways, by auction on and by donation. Several items have been donated for our online auction, and we’re also collecting direct donations through Fundrazr and Facebook. The smallest amount will help; if 50 friends can find $100 that’s a few months mortgage paid. If another 200 can find $50, then that’s a whole lot of relief.
