Dear Friends,

I am writing this letter with a heavy heart, my longtime employee and close family friend Doug Poffenberger has been suddenly stricken with a terminal form of a rare blood cancer (Multiple Myeloma, Stage 3). This disease has hit hard and fast and as in most cases it has been and will continue to be a huge financial burden on Doug and his family.  

Doug and his family are facing a 250 mile round trip to the hospital per visit for 2 years while they fight this disease. They are telling Doug that he will be placed in the hospital for multiple visits of 6 to 15 days and at least 2 - 30 day visits for stem cell replacement. This means his wife, Heather will have huge costs in lodging and travel expenses as well as daily food expense on the road. At the same time Heather is losing most of her income while she travels with and spends time with her husband.  

Doug is 41 years old and was just diagnosed with this disease; Doug and Heather have a 10 year old daughter, Emma and 2 boys Justin & Ian actively serving in our U.S. Military; Ashton a 13 year old stepson and Acelyn a 12 year old stepdaughter.. Doug is a great guy with a good soul and a great attitude in life and has always been a hard worker and devoted to supporting his family by working hard for me daily so he could do just that.  

We at Tom Harris Auctions are asking for your support!  Doug and his family need thousands of dollars today, and many more thousands in the future so they can have money to live on. They will need money to cover daily expenses, Doctor & hospital bills, medicine, travel and living expenses, and house payments. Last year they put all they had into buying their first home and the mortgage goes on in spite of Doug having no income. .  

Please, if you can find it in your heart we are asking you to please write us a check. We need to raise thousands of dollars to be able to even put a dent in this situation. Please give what you can, we appreciate anything you can do to help.  

Another option and opportunity to help our friend Doug is to donate items for us to sell in an upcoming auction which all proceeds from your item(s) will go to Doug and his family. For example, I, Tom Harris am going to donate some clocks, dolls and other items to sell in the auction with the proceeds all being given to Doug and Heather. If you wish, you could send us a lamp, toy, clock, watch or anything to sell in an auction and I will pay for all marketing and give 100% to the cause.  

We need fast action, Doug is in big trouble. Please send as much as you can afford to this cause to Tom Harris Auctions or call Tom or his staff to discuss your donation of antiques or collectibles to this truly worthy cause. Doug is Good People! And good people sometimes need good people to help them out of horrible situations.  

I hope I have not offended anyone by writing this letter and reaching out to my friends and customers, but I know most Antiquers are good people too; and good people have to stick together.  

All and any donations are greatly appreciated and if you want to send Doug a card send it here and we will get it to him. I am sure he will appreciate your thoughts and best wishes. Thank You for your Support!
