Help Pearl Jam's Merchandise Manager Tom Husman beat cancer!

Back in October 2018, Pearl Jam's Merchandise Manager (and very close friend) Tom Husman was diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer. It's been a tough battle for Tom, but he's still full of jokes and keeping his head high. A group of us recently setup a GoFundMe account for Tom to help out with his ongoing medical expenses and I wanted to share the link with everyone here. I apologize if this is not allowed in the forum, but I'm just looking to help a good friend who's always been there for others.

Love ya Tommy!

Cheers,
Ryan S.

    I really dig that dude Tom.

     He was kind enough to show me stones pick he had in his pocket.

    Always gives us crazy fans respect and love.
    He said if it wasnt for us he wouldnt have a cool merch job...or something like that.
    He was genuinely excited to watch us and others open our mystery boxes at Seattle pop shop. 
    Definitely a positive person that the world should take a cue from...take care and thanks

    I will forever be in gratitude for something he did very kind for me and for a US Navy veteran.  I'm going to try to figure something out and sell some items on lost dogs and see if we can chip in and help

    Damn. I met him many times on the 2016 tour. I mistook him for Santos which he got a laugh out of. Best wishes going out to him and his family.
