A very dear friend of mine, Miguel Tomas Lucio or known by most as Tom, is battling for his life. Tom's family has kept his diagnosis private. However, there comes a time when some battles are just too big to fight without support. This is where all of us friends, family and the community need to come together to support Tom Lucio and his family.

Tom has been diagnosed with end stage liver disease with CANCER; hepatocellular carcinoma. His prognosis is dire! The only possible cure for his disease is to have a liver transplant. He has only just recently been placed on the University of Michigan's wait list. There are currently over 17,000 people on the national wait list and the average wait time is 321 days. Tom is truly faced with a battle for his life.

Due to Tom's liver failure, he has become extremely tired, weak, has fainting spells, and suffers from ascites, which is fluid build up in the abdominal cavity causing him intense pressure and pain. His doctors have advised him to stop working. This has only added more stress and worry to his life and for his wife, Clarissa.

Clarissa is working as much as humanly possible! She is doing everything within her power to take care of Tom and her 3 children. Unfortunately, one income is just not enough. Adding to their financial difficulties and stress is the fact that their insurance is now starting to deny medical claims for certain testing.

Please send this fundraiser to your friends and family either by Facebook, Twitter or email. Let's help get the word out that this precious family is in need of our help. Donate whatever you can afford...even if it is just a dollar. Every dollar counts! Lastly, if you could just take a moment and please pray for Tom, Clarissa and their 3 children to grant them peace, healing and to quickly find Tom's match for his liver transplant. Thank you for your prayers and donations. Let's show Tommy and his family the love and support that we have for them during this difficult time!
