It is with a very emotional heart that I write to all my Chive family out there and ask for ANY HELP that you can give. I’m generally reluctant to call out for aid unless it’s last resort and absolutely necessary. But that is exactly where I find myself at present.
One of my oldest and dearest friends from back in my Indiana days just had a massive stroke that has left him in bad shape. Due to an extremely rare disease called Moyamoya, Tim Tolentino (seen on the right busting my chops) has been rendered unable to speak, lost his ability to move his right arm and has become very lethargic. And anybody who has ever known Tim understands it’s damn near impossible to keep that charismatic soul quiet for two seconds, so trust me when I say he’s fighting a severe battle right now.
Tim is currently recovering after Neurologists performed an angioplasty to the area of his brain that was not getting enough blood flow. And as you can imagine the bills pile up incredibly fast!
His WONDERFUL FAMILY has started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds to pay off the massive amount of financial burden brought on by hospital stays, surgery, and a treatment plan!
Any ounce of help you can send my buddy’s way would make you my hero for life. You can DONATE HERE!
