  • 0:01 - 0:04
    I'm Capt Johnathan Hillstrand off the Deadliest Catch, on the
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    Discovery Channel, and Im here today
  • 0:08 - 0:12
    to ask for a little help. Ive known Tom
  • 0:12 - 0:15
    since I moved here to Maple Valley, 7 or 8
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    years ago. He's honest,
  • 0:17 - 0:21
    says what he means, he's a great guy, salt of the earth
  • 0:21 - 0:24
    hardworking guy, great family... I meet a lot of people that
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    say one thing, mean another... but Tom's more like me, honest,
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    but he's too proud, right now he wouldn't let us do this, he would
  • 0:32 - 0:36
    be embarrassed. He's a very proud man.
  • 0:36 - 0:40
    a very great person. They are an
  • 0:40 - 0:45
    all-American family man, until the last 3 years and things
  • 0:45 - 0:48
    started happening, one thing led to the next in a chain reaction of events
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    so they are about ready to lose everything.
  • 0:51 - 0:55
    I came here to ask... to do this video for Tom
  • 0:55 - 1:00
    to ask people to help out just a little. If a lot helped out just a little
  • 1:00 - 1:04
    it would save this family, get them turned back around.
  • 1:04 - 1:06
    This is Thomas Jnr, about as old as he was when I met him.
  • 1:06 - 1:12
    He became a young man, into High School, then he
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    got cancer, one of the rarest cancers,
  • 1:16 - 1:20
    for a kid. Then his father was in a freak accident
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    and he's severely burned. So now they are both in the hospital
  • 1:23 - 1:27
    their house is being foreclosed... its just one thing after
  • 1:27 - 1:31
    the next and they could use a little help.
  • 1:31 - 1:35
    This family is a great family and they need some help
  • 1:35 - 1:40
    and just a little bit from... if everyone helps out just a little
  • 1:40 - 1:44
    you can turn this whole thing around, and save this family.
  • 1:44 - 1:48
    And that's why I'm doing this.
