Tom Dooley Benefit Planned

Early this year, former WFIL-A/PHILLY and WAYS-A/CHARLOTTE personality TOM DOOLEY’s family and friends noticed subtle changes in his behavior. After a short time, TOM began experiencing some neurological issues such as difficulty with balance and extreme fatigue. After a battery of tests and a biopsy, TOM was diagnosed with grade IV glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive brain cancer.
TOM had surgery to remove a large tumor on APRIL 8th. Although the surgery was considered a success for removing the encapsulated portion of the tumor, some cancer still remains and surgery left TOM permanently paralyzed on his left side and with some field vision loss.
Some of TOM's friends are trying to help, with a benefit planned. Find all about it here.
