Meet Don’t Worry Be Happy shirts new fundraiser warrior, Richard “DINO” Tamoush

Meet our New Warrior, Richard “Dino” Tamoush:  He was once deemed the “Laker Fan of the Year. (Literally!—brought through the locker room and onto the court!)  He’s the president of the Metallica Fan Club (No kidding!  Los Angeles Chapter).  He is a long time member of the St. Michael Orthodox Church of Van Nuys as a subdeacon, and member of th…e parish council. Dino is son, husband, father, Godfather, uncle and brother and has always been the ‘rock’ in his extended family of 50, not to mention life of the party.  Ask anyone who has met Dino, even once, and they will tell you he makes an impression you will not

Dino also has a little thing called cancer.  In November of 2010, Dino was diagnosed with a very rare form of bladder cancer- Neuroendocrine differential Small Cell cancer of the bladder.  He was told only 1% of bladder cancers are this type. Dino started heavy Chemotherapy and Radiation the first week of December and most likely faces bladder removal. While this type of cancer is aggressive, we know Dino is a fighter and will be back at the Laker games in no time.

Dino, 50, has been married to his wife since 1988 and together they support 3 children- two still in high school. His doctor has told him not to expect to return to work in the near future and he has since set up a home office however, with the physical toll of chemo and radiation and pending surgery, work may not be easy. Dino is ready to fight this thing one step at a time but of course the medical bills and financial strain is inevitable. By purchasing a Don’t Worry Be Happy shirt in Dino’s name, together we can help alleviate a bit of financial stress so that Dino and his family can focus on healing (and being happy!)
