The Tyner Project
Organized by: jacob probe
EVENT DATE Dec 06, 2014
Family and friends,
As many of you are aware that this family is in major need to help with mounting medical bills. Dominic Sr. has had MS for some time now and was recently diagnosed with Cancer and has a tough road ahead, and that's just the beginning, Lil Dominic (his son) has Mitochondrial Dysfunction along with a rare disease called eosinophilic esophagitis. This affliction causes his body to produce far too many white blood cells which then seek out healthy cells and tissue misidentifying the healthy as being harmful, hostile cells.On their rampage through his young body, white-celled eosinophils cause him to have violent allergic reactions to most foods that families take for granted: all meats (fowl, and beast) dairy, eggs, oats, glutten, wheat and corn (that has 72 derivatives ). These are just a sample of foods, things, and sensations that make it impossible for him to keep food in his tummy. With his lowered immune system Lil D can not participate in playing as kids his age should be doing because of the fear of him getting very sick, he also can no longer control his bowel movements and had to be removed from school and any friends he did have, he is now home schooled.
Dominic Sr. is also a long standing member of the Knights of Columbus #8500 from Highland MI.
All donations will go towards:
-Major medical bills.
-Dominic Sr. being out of work for the surgeries needed.
-Dominic Sr's $1600 monthly copay for his MS transfusions.
-Lil Dominic now needs to be home schooled and his mom must leave her job to take on this task.
-Lil Dominic's extreme dietary needs.
-Lil Dominic's home schooling needs.
I'm sure I have probably missed a lot of things that they can't do and we take for granted, please help me try to provide some assistance and relief to this loving family.
Thank you greatly for any help you can provide,
Knights of Columbus #8500
