Tom is first and foremost a husband, father, grandfather, engineer, military veteran, outdoorsman, nature enthusiast, hunter, and fisherman. He is active in his church. He has built 2 lake houses and there is no manual labor task that he cannot accomplish. He has also recently become a cancer patient. In February, his hair dresser noticed a bruise on his scalp that was growing during successive hair cuts. A visit to the dermatologist revealed the shocking news that Tom had angiosarcoma, a rare and aggressive type of cancer. You can Google it if you like, but we won't focus on any negative stuff here. Tom knows he's got a tough road ahead, he knows that the goal for this cancer is management and not necessarily a cure, but he also knows that he feels good and strong and that he has more to accomplish on this Earth. His treatment protocol is chemotherapy and radiation once a week for 8 weeks beginning on June 5th. Thank you for visiting this site and for all the support you will show Tom as he takes on this latest challenge. This site is written and maintained by Tom's daughter, Kristen.
