As you probably already have learned, Ted Loh (best known as ĎSpearmasterí), passed away late Monday following a valiant fight with liver cancer.
What most people didnít know is that Ted was battling this since January (he was diagnosed, Dec. 31st), and he did so without health insurance.
Each chemo treatment came with a $4000 price tag. All of the drugs added up into the tens of thousands of dollars. In Tedís last ditch attempt to save his life, he opted into a radical radiation therapy, called SIR-Spheres. To have this therapy, Ted had to travel to Singapore, enduring the cost of the trip and $20,000 for the procedure.
It goes without saying that Ted was not able to pull in much income during the year with everything he was contending with. With this in mind, weíve set up a fund to help Tedís family in the hopes of getting them back on their feet and ultimately giving them the financial stability theyíll need in going forward.
For those who donít know, Ted left behind his wife and three school-aged children (the youngest being only 9 years old).
I know times are tough and people have been so generous of late. Iím hoping that thereís still some giving left in everyone for the family of someone whoís done so very much for this industry.
