Often Awesome's website says this about Tim:
"Tim survived his first diagnosis "birthday", but there have been no advances in treatment in the 28 years since his mother's death. Tim is almost house-bound and has lost his ability to care for his basic needs. There is a silver lining to this seemingly sad story. Tim can discuss his decline with humor and truthfulness and he has the kind of friends that give you faith in humanity. We felt helpless as we watched our friend lose muscle control and his ability to breathe on his own. We desperately wanted to care for our friend and so the Often Awesome Army was born. Our "Army" started off as a close-knit group. It grew into a 1400+ person movement with t-shirts, a care team, benefit shows and an award winning web series!"
Some of the ladies from GSORD knew Tim very well and soon enough we all knew who he was and his story... we got to be part of the army. We have hosted several events with money going to Often Army. Last year, GSORD threw a large "Release Yo' Self" dance party to help raise money for ALS.
Often Awesome also has a captivating series, documenting Tim's experience: Often Awesome: The Series
