This is the Tom Gibbs nasal surgery fund. The funds will be used for Tom's medical costs and related expenses. Please show your support!

I would like you to meet Tom, my husband and best friend. He is 48 years old and has been diagnosised with severe sleep apena. He has been on a CPAP machine for 6 months and using a nasel medicine as well to try to shrink the cartilage that is causing his apena. Next step is surgery. He will be off work for up to 2 weeks and we need help to cover his time off plus pay for 20% of his surgery. Tom is a construction worker, he has built many beautiful homes. He helps anyone and everyone without charging a dime, never expects things from people and never asks for help. He does all this with only sleeping for an average of 4 hrs a night. He is completely worn down and stressed to his maximum limits. Without this surgery or the use of his CPAP machine, his risk of heart attack or stroke is increased by 65%. It is strongly recommended that he have this surgery and soon. We have 5 children (3 still at home) and I am a stay at home mom. He can't and don't miss work because he doesn't want to let us down. So, in appreciation for who he is and what he has done, I (Tammy-his wife) am trying to raise money so that he can have this surgery and continue to work to support the family that he loves so much. We have insurance (80/20) and no way to pay our bills while he is not working. So, I'm asking for help. Please, continue to pray for our family. God bless you all!!!
