Twin States Wrestling tags up with Team TED!!

Twin States Wrestling is proud to announce that our next big event on Saturday September 10th at the ProSouth Arena in Piedmont, Alabama will be a benefit show to raise money for Team TED.  Ted Gilmer is a good friend, former co-worker, and wrestling superfan who was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma (malignant brain tumor).  Since then his family has struggled with everything that goes along with cancer and cancer treatment.  Here is an excerpt from Ted's wife Holly's GoFundMe page which was started to help raise money for Ted and his family.  

"My husband, Ted, was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma (malignant brain tumor) in November 4, 2012.  We have a daughter,12 and twin boys that are 8.

We have been blessed beyond measure with an outpouring of family and friends, but as time has gone on, donations have dwindled. Family and friends are unable to continue with donations for various reasons. We are truly grateful for what they have already done!

Family and friends have been so generous and have gotten us this far, we are truly blessed! However medical bills continue. Ted's brain cancer treatment, chemotherapy, will not ever end until it is ineffective or it too damaging to continue, so there isn't really a set amount that will take care of medical bills and other living expenses. The treatments keep him alive. That is the goal. To hold the cancer at bay is what we expect of chemotherapy right now.  We don't expept chemotherapy to cure it, though we do pray, and hope that happens.

I chose $15,000 because that might help us get caught up with existing bills. Any amount is helpful and appreciated greatly. Thank you for your time and consideration! We also would like to thank you in advance for any donations given!

May God Bless you and keep you safe from harm."
