Hello! I’m Tommy’s mate, Barry (one of his mates, I mean – he’s not a sad loner with only one friend. I’m sure he’d want me to make that clear.)
Back in the darkest days of Tommy’s first cancer battle, I popped up from time to time to keep you posted on how he was doing in hospital. I’m happy to report that I’m not here for that reason today, but I am here for something important.
After much prodding and encouragement from me and those other friends I mentioned above (who are definitely real and not imaginary), Tommy has reluctantly agreed to start a crowdfunding campaign to help him pay his bills. That first cancer battle pretty much crippled him and his family financially, and he was just starting to get back on his feet when cancer kicked them out from under him again. Then probably ran away laughing. The bastard.
Tommy has worked hard all his life to support himself and his family, and hates the idea of asking for charity. I, on the other hand, have no hesitation in asking you to lend your support for one of the kindest, funniest, shortest men I know. We’re trying to raise £10,000 so Tommy can face this battle without any financial worries to weigh him down. A lot of amazing people have already given generously, and we’d love it if you were able to lend a hand, too.
If you can’t, don’t worry, but it’s free to share the link, and that would be really useful. If you can afford to give something – anything – then I know how much Tommy would appreciate it, and what a difference you’d be making to his life, and the life of his family.
You can find the donation page here. The total is listed in pounds, but you can pay in any currency.
Thank you in advance for your support.
