Exclamation Please help Tom Casino Showtime Photographer

Please help Tom Casino as he recovers from several health emergencies. The money will be used for living expenses,medical bills .

For many years, Showtime sports photographer Tom Casino has artfully captured the seminal moments of athletic competitions and focused too on the needs and wellbeing of others. Now he needs our help.

Back surgery last summer, then a near-lethal pulmonary embolism and a debilitating stomach virus called c.diff , have depleted Tom’s assets, the misery compounded by additional expenses through another six months of physical rehabilitation. Under a best-case scenario, these medical setbacks will cost Tommy one year of work and more than $100,000 in health-care costs. Without our help, food stamps, Medicaid and financial ruin loom his new reality.

Determined to summon a spark of his old vitality, Tom engages in grueling physical therapy three times a week at the Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, NJ, with the relentless attention to detail that makes him such a gifted photographer. Those who know Tom personally or professionally surely regard his cheerful disposition, caring ways and consistent generosity. If we truly get back what we give in this life, Tom should be due rich assistance.

He has been there for many of us. Now, in his hour of need, let’s turn the lens on him and capture what he means to us. Here’s how you can help.

If you are uncomfortable donating on line you can make out a check to “Tom Casino.” On the memo line please write “Gift,” which will provide you and Tom a gift-tax exemption. Please mail the check to:

Tom Casino
P.O. Box 58212
Washington, D.C. 20037

Let’s get Tom on the road to a complete recovery. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Thank you for your generosity.

I hadn't heard this. I do hope Tom makes a full recovery as soon as possible. He is a very nice man and a great boxing photographer.

All the best to him and his family.
