Fundraiser for Tim Mayer by his "Floydian" friends! Funds raised will help Tim and his wife Brenda cover his health and medical costs as well as day to day living expenses while they try to overcome Tim's latest hurdle with regard to losing his Long Term Disability Pension, as well as having his health and dental benefits cut, while continuing to battle lymphoma.

Tim is a 53 year old truck driver, who has been off work battling 3 different cancers 5 times in the past 6 years! Tim to date since December 2006 has battled against Squamous Cell Carcinoma in his throat, for which he underwent radiation, as well as T-Cell Histiocyte Rich Diffuse Large B-Cell Non-Hogkin's Lymphoma for which he underwent chemotherapy treatments, twice! He then underwent an Autologous Stem Cell/Bone Marrow transplant in December of 2008.

Just one short year after undergoing the transplant Tim's Lymphoma returned again, this time it was Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin's Lymphoma, as this was found in a stage 1 status he was able to undergo Radiation once again!

Tim found out in December of 2010 that the Nodular Lymphocyte Predominate Hodgkins had returned once again.This time after a Pet/CT scan, and a surgical biopsy it was found to be stage 3. After discussions with his Onclogist in his hometown of Windsor and seeking a second opinion in Detroit MI, it was decided the best course of action for now would be to "Watch & Wait" as he has been through so much already.

Doing Chemotherapy would not have any different effect or outcome whether doing it now or after it progresses further. There are options on the table for when the time for treatment comes and this is where he currently stands with regard to his cancer status.

In March of this year Tim's Long Term Disability insurance ended, as it had a five year limit on payments imposed by his employer. His wife Brenda has been seeking employment with no success to date.

Since his insurance ended, his employer unexpectedly went further and cut his Health & Dental benefits which covered both him and his wife. To take matters even further his employer ended his employment effective the end of March as well. Tim is currently fighting this.

His union and company have met once so far, and things do not look promising at this point.

In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us ~ Thank you for your generosity!
