This is the Jim Norris Lymphoma Fund. Donations will be used for medical related expenses. Please donate and pass along to others. Thank You

Early in the month of March my father, Jim Norris, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Follicular Lymphoma after having a small tumor under his armpit surgically removed. As testing and scans have shown, the lymphoma has spread to other areas of his body and is currently considered in stage II of III.

As you can imagine, the medical expenses are already in the thousands and he hasn't even started treatment. My father does not have health insurance so these bills fall back to him. Medical bills aren't the real problem. Where the problem lies is with regular expenses. With any illness, it is hard, sometimes impossible, to work which makes buying food, gas, and other monthly bills difficult, if not impossible to pay. This is why I created this fund. To try to raise money and help my parents so my father can concentrate on getting healthy and not on how to afford to eat.

I ask this, please donate what you can. Even pennies add up to dollars. Please pass along to your friends, family, co-workers. Anyone you can think of. The more people we can get to help, the more of a difference we can make.

As if I wasn't already asking enough, I have one more favor to ask. Please take a moment and send a card, letter, whatever you want to help cheer my dad on in this fight. Even if you have never met him, words of encouragement can go a long way. Especially those of a stranger.

Most of you know that in February I became a father myself. I sit here and I think of everything my father taught me. All the things I hope one day to teach my boys. If I had only one wish, it would be for my father and I to teach my boys together.

If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact a representative for the family please call Steven Norris (Jim's son) at 317-503-5900 or e-mail at
