Hello everyone, As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with my health since late fall. It started with a heavy leg and my muscles in my left leg and arm began to atrophy. I have been to many specialists at well respected medical institutions such as yale and massachusetts general hospital. On february 22, i was diagnosed with a disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis….. Aka ..(als) or lou gehrigs disease. Thank goodness it isn’t named after a red sox player. This disease causes the motor nuerons in your spinal column to die which causes the destruction of your nerves and muscles. They don’t know how you get it and as of now there is no cure. I am however treating it with a combination of western and eastern medicines, accupuncture, vitamins, herbs, etc. I will also get involved in clinical studies in the upcoming months. Many of you have expressed concern and I no longer want to tell half truths… it’s not my style. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people who I not only call co-workers, but friends. I will continue to fight this head on and with all your support and prayers, beat this disease. Once again, thank- you to all and may god bless you!
Hello Everyone, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your kindness, love, and support during this journey. The cards, emails, text messages, facebook comments, visits, meals, help around our home, rides for the boys, and most importantly your prayers have helped motivate and sustain me as I battle this disease. Your responses and generosity have been overwhelming and no words can express the gratitude that my family and I are feeling. The disease accelerated during the months of April and May to the point that I can no longer walk nor do I have the ability to use my arms. In June the disease moved into my chest muscles and diaphragm causing me great difficulty in breathing. I now breathe with the aid of a machine that helps to expand my lungs. However, during the month of July it appears I have stabilized with my condition not getting any worse. I am fortunate ALS has not affected my heart, mind or spirit. I will continue to fight this disease head on each day and pray for a miracle. People say they are impressed by my courage, however I am the one impressed by how each and every one of you have dug down deep into your heart and soul to help out a friend in need. I cannot put into words the love my family and I feel from all, and you will forever have our gratitude. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. God bless you, Tim P.S. The Yankees are still in first ☺!
Our goal was simple, to raise money for Brian & Timmy. All money donated has gone directly to a trust fund set up for Tim's children The initial goal was that and we thank all for making it happen. “The Considine children are truly blessed by so many wonderful, thoughtful and caring individuals.” “The family is deeply touched by the generosity and emotional support of so many during such a difficult time.” .
Our goal now is to keep the memory or Tim alive and help raise awareness and money to help in the fight against ALS.
