The following words are from Diane Larson posted
on a care page of which allows family and friends to keep continuous
updates on Timmy’s condition. This website is updated as
much as Diane can get on and update it while staying at the Ronald
McDonald House while Timmy is going through treatments. Timmy
is still going through numerous medical battles months after this
dream fishing trip with Jimmy Houston. Within the past couple
months, Jimmy Houston’s wife, Chris, has traveled to MI
to visit Timmy in the hospital and told him when he beats the
cancer that battles with him, he and his family are invited back
down to Okalahoma to once again go fishing with Jimmy! Timmy is
looking forward to this trip to say the least! Please keep Timmy
and his family in your prayers as he has a long ways to go…..
We had a great trip! Thanks to Benefit4Kids (B4K.org) Jimmy Houston
and the Bass Pro shop, Timmy was treated like a little king. He
had a lot of fun! We spent one night in the Arbuckle Mountains
at a cabin, which was a great outdoor experience. There was 77
foot waterfalls that you could swim by, mountains to climb and
caves to explore. I had some great pics from there but somehow
lost them on my camera. Timmy was happy because he got to go Rocky
Mountain climbing like in his Tim McGraw song. The day spent at
Jimmy’s Ranch was another wonderful experience. Timmy got
to see lots of deer, elk, a snake and most importantly a lot of
FISH!! Jimmy fishes barbless at his lake so sad to say Timmy never
got one on his pole, but reeled in many BIG BASS!! He was very
happy, but without the barb the fish don't get stuck on there
very easy you really have to be paying attention and set the hook.
Big Tim caught quite a few Bass the average size was about 5 pounds.
I fished all day and only caught one crappie and a lot of snags.
That day was definitely a day we will all remember forever! Mrs.
Houston told Timmy to fight his cancer and win and he can come
back and fish some more so he has another reason to in his words
"beat up this cancer." The Houston’s called the
Bass Pro shop in Okalahoma City and they gave Timmy the VIP treatment.
He got a whole new wardrobe, a luggage case for his pole so he
could take it on the plane, and some other goodies he wanted.
They fed the fish for him and he got to play all of the shooting
games for free and just do and get what he wanted. It was pretty
cool! He also did some swimming, putt putting, and go cart riding.
It was an all about Timmy week and it was fun for all!!
Lots of Love to all of you,
The Timmy Larson Family
