You Could Help Save a Life...

This is our friend Tim

Tim has been a longtime supporter and advocate for BGTP and many other charitable causes, and now it’s our turn to be an advocate for him. As a  member of our community, I know how much kindness and compassion matter to you. So in the spirit of that compassion, I wanted to share Tim’s story with you.

In 2020 Tim was diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer. He was given just 3 years to live. He then found out, that he desperately needs a liver transplant. 

What has always made Tim remarkable as an individual is his gift to look at every challenge as an opportunity. Even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, Tim quickly regained his relentlessly optimistic outlook and began not only his fight but helping others with theirs. 


Always an incredible connector and networker, Tim has spent the last two years tirelessly advocation for people to be screened early and often for colorectal cancer, the nation's second leading cause of cancer death. What Tim has taught is is that doctors are pioneering new techniques in treating cancer and one in particular, Living Liver Donation could help save his life and the lives of the thousands of others awaiting a transplant. 


We’re asking you, our community, to participate in our campaign of awareness and healing for Tim in one or more  of the four following ways:

  1. Make an appointment to get screened. Not tomorrow, not next week. Today. It’s the best way to ensure that you have the greatest odds of beating CRC should you be one of the over 106,000 people who are diagnosed every year in the US.

  2.  Make a donation to FightCRC Tim’s scientific partner of choice. 

  3. Learn about living organ donation and register to see if you’re a donor match for living organ donation for the over 100,000 people waiting for a match at (BTW, Tim 
  4. SHARE this email and information with your family, friends and sphere of influence.  There is such power and strength in getting this out there to as many people as possible. 
During this season of giving it’s our hope, we can give Tim and the thousands of people like him the support they need to continue their fight, and ultimately help find a cure for this terrible disease. Please consider participating in our Kindness campaign for Tim. It’s a just one more opportunity for us to
Be Good to People®.

The idea for Be Good to People® was inspired, believe it or not, by an unkind experience that founder Kris Wittenberg had back in the spring of 2008 while running errands at lunch.
