Family & friends of Tommy Meeks are helping him win the fight of his life. Your support will help win the battle. Please donate if you can.

Tom was diagnosed with 4th stage non-small cell lung cancer on December 16, 2010.

He has several complications which don't allow for conventional surgery, chemo or radiation. He has chosen to visit the Envita Medical Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona with hopes of trying a different form of chemo treatment (3 times a week at $1850 each) along with immune system strengthening (2 times a week at $750). There is a possibility for Tomotherapy which is a specialized pinpoint radiation technique and covered by insurance.

This form of treatment is expensive and because it's considered alternative and experimental, most of it, if any at all, is not covered by Medicare or insurance. Other expenses include living away from home and gas back and forth to the clinic... Ouch! We have been fortunate enough to have friends of family to stay with most of the time to help with lodging costs. However, as you all know, it's very expensive to live away from home as there are a lot of additional expenses involved.

Tom and his family would greatly appreciate and welcome any form of donation large or small. Anything at all would help at this point.

Tom is staying positive and looking forward to joining his friends on the golf course and continuing to play with his grandkids.

God Bless and we wish for a positive outcome... not a cure but atleast quality along with quantity of life for Tom.
