Crystal Coast Friend of Fishing Needs Help
The Carolina’s fishing community is well known for coming to the aid of those that need their help. No matter if it’s a fishing tournament to raise money for a sick child or a fundraiser to help hurricane victims. It is an important part of the fabric of our coastal fishing family. That same kindness is again being seen in Morehead City and beyond with the fundraising efforts for Tim Conrady, Jr. He was recently diagnosed with small cell lung cancer that has spread to his brain. He was given the unfortunate news that his cancer is terminal with a life expectancy of 9-12 months. He just finished radiation treatment to his brain and is now undergoing chemotherapy.
Tim works for Morehead’s Starling Marine as a marine mechanic. Tim had joined the Air Force where he was an SRA – Senior Airman. He and his wife Lorie have 3 beautiful children and 3 amazing grandchildren that they adore. Tim worked for Ford Motor Company for many years and then decided he wanted to learn a new trade and went to school at Wyotech to become a Marine Mechanic. He joined the team at Starling Marine and was immediately loved & respected as a hard worker. Unfortunately, due to the spread of the disease and symptoms it can cause, he was forced to resign from his position, but he does still visit his friends at Starling on a weekly basis during his trips for treatment.
Tim’s positive outlook on life and his determination are inspiring to those that know and love him. Please consider supporting this campaign to help with the building medical expenses from his diagnosis and treatment. His family is very supportive emotionally and physically but the medical costs are building and it would be great if that stress could be relieved some and they can spend lots of quality time together!
With that said, it’s time for our fishing community to again come together and help one of our own. It’s what makes this community great. We hope you will also share this effort with your friends and family members. Below you will find information on how you can help Tim and his family with your donation. Donations can be made to Tim’s Go Fund Me Page. If you prefer to make a donation to this campaign by check, you may mail it to Starling Marine, but please address the check to Tim Conrady.
