First of all, I have the full support of Certis and Dr Awkward to post this. Dr Awkward didn't want me to make the post "schmaltzy", so I'm going to do my best to make it just that way
In life, you have good friends, and then you have great friends. I have had the privilege and honor of knowing Dr Awkward (aka Tim) for the past 30 years. No matter how good or how bad something is going, Tim keeps his head up high. He doesn't let anything get him down, and I really respect that. Too many times in life it's easy to play the victim and focus on the bad rather than the good. This is the complete opposite of Tim.
Unfortunately, in the not too distant past, Tim was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. To put it bluntly, it sucks. Mortality rates are not as high as everyone would like them to see, but despite the fact that the odds are against him, he has not let this slow him down at all. Tim holds his head high and has a lot of pride. He never asks for any handouts or pity and always has a can-do attitude. Despite his stubbornness, a good friend has started a GoFundMe page for Tim and his family.
I know Tim has been around here for many years and I'm sure is known by a lot of you. Despite his drunken outbursts of language that will make a pirate blush when a game isn't going his way, I hope that you all have had very positive interactions with him. I figure if nothing else, we could all pitch in a couple bucks and help him out. I get it that it's not always easy to donate and financial situations vary greatly, so if you can't donate (or even if you do), let's pump up this thread with support and show Tim how much we care about him!
