From Chelsea Norris' GoFundMe post:
Tommy is a beloved husband, father, ‘Pop’ and is chief of Poplar Springs Fire Department in Spartanburg, SC. Recently, all of a sudden, Tommy had several consecutive seizures. After many days of testing, it was determined Tommy had a tumor on his brain. As he and his wife, Donna, navigated this new information, Tommy continued to experience seizures, slowing of his speech, and completely unrelated blood clot issues that resulted in many tests for a presumed heart attack. This March, Tommy was finally able to undergo surgery to remove the tumor. Biopsy results showed he is fighting a Grade 4, Glioblastoma Multiforme. This type of cancer is presumed incurable BUT if you know Tommy, you know he is a fighter.
Tommy and Donna are facing many, many difficulties right now. If we can lift the financial burden that medical issues of this size bring, that is one less thing they will need to worry with. We assume they will continue to incur travel expenses, the cost of chemo (or whatever treatment process they choose), the constant cost of his medications, etc. We don’t know what the future will hold but our hope remains in Jesus. The enemy has worked hard to use this situation to break us but we won’t let that happen. I hope you’ll consider joining us along side Tommy’s fight.
