Please help the PUD Support Thomas Team to raise funds to cover his medical needs & to unite him with his family! Thank You!!

Thomas is a Supervisor for a Call Center for a government entity. He was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer about 6 months ago. He has underwent two series of Chemo with no results. He is now at Tampa General Hospital receiving radiation treatments. If his blood tests come back good, he will start a third, stronger type of chemo.
Thomas is a young, hard working family man. His wife Elizabeth & their two girls currently reside in Nicaragua. He was working two jobs to bring them to the US permanently.
He has exhausted all of his sick/annual leave needed to supplement his short term disability. His income has been drastically reduced. He has to pay the employee portion of his health insurance premium & any other insurance costs. He has to pay high co-payments to doctor's & hospitals.
He is living in a tiny, one bedroom apartment with his 82 yr old mother, who is caring for him. She has a twin bed in the kitchen of his upstairs apartment. His 1998 Mazda needs repair. It will only go a few blocks without overheating. His transmission is slipping also.
His co-workers want to raise money to ease his financial burden of supporting two families on a reduced income. We would like to fly his wife & children to the US. His daughters need emergency visas & airfare to travel to the US.
We would like to buy him a better car with air conditioning to use to travel back & forth to the hospital & doctor appointments.
