Larry was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in May of 2011. He now has to undergo a Bone Marrow transplant in Tennessee.

The Family of Larry Thomas needs YOUR help!

We will be having a fundraiser at our home on July 29th in Hazel Park to help raise funds for Medical and Living Expenses while Larry undergoes a Bone Marrow Transplant in Tennessee.

Larry has been undergoing chemotherapy for the last nine months including radiation for two months. He has been diagnosed with Diffuse Large B Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. His health concerns have created quite an emotional strain for his family of six kids, two grandkids, and the extended family.

Larry is a fighter who continues to work every day that he can between treatments. Some days he may need to leave work to rest and will go back to work later. He has tried to not let this illness slow him down too much. Some days are better than others. Unfortunately, because of his working, disability benefits are a difficult thing to qualify for. He will be traveling out of state for the bone marrow transplant. Larry is expected to be there for six to eight weeks, and a family member must be present the entire time. When he returns to Michigan there are a couple months of recovery and working might not be an option.

Larry is only fifty years old and together with friends and family plans to fight this disease. With everyone’s help we, the family, hope to make this long process as stress free as possible. We love our dad and want to help the best way we can.

Thank you for your time, money, care, donations, prayers, and concern! We look forward to seeing you!

Love,
Larry’s Kids
