http://www.safetynetmo.org/ Description In September of 2011, life for Tim and Angie was perfect. They had just booked a trip to Mexico where Tim secretly planned to propose marriage to Angie on the beaches of Playa del Carmen. Angie had been experiencing some moderate stomach issues and due to the upcoming trip, decided to see a doctor. On October 31, the devestating diagnosis of stage IV colon cancer was received. Additionally, it was... learned that the cancer has spread and covered Angie's liver. The prognosis was that this grogeous, vivacious, mother of three was given 2-5 years to live, would be on chemotherapy for the rest of her life, and she would be sentenced to endure an ostomy in order to buy some time.
On November 3, 2011, Angie was on the operating table having a chemo port installed and ileostomy created to bypass her colon. Instead of a beach proposal, Tim asked Angie to marry him as she recovered from surgery. On November 29th, Tim and Angie were married and continued the cancer battle as husband and wife.
For the next year, Angie and Tim fought valiantly, enduring more surgeries, and overcoming the sometimes devestating side effects of the chemotherapy. Angie kept her upbeat, "screw cancer" attitude and lived every day to its fullest. In September of 2011, it was learned that the cancer had spread to her ovaries and had become very aggressive. She endured yet another major operation but had to suspend chemo to heal from the surgery. That ended up being the game changer, as without chemotherapy, the cancer was able to grow unchecked.
Angie succumbed to cancer on December 11, 2012. The "two to five years" ended up being only 14 months. Angie was 39 years old.
Angie and Tim Tinnin both work(ed) for the Missouri State Highway Patrol and one of their great loves was organizing and holding benefit BBQs for individuals that had been struck by tragedy. Over the previous five years, it is estimated they and their Troop F crew raised nearly $100,000 for various causes. Even while fighting for her own life, Angie could always be found working at benefit BBQ's to provide for others. It's the kind of person she was.
Angie was a computer trainer, a prior radio operator for the Missouri State Highway Patrol and first female member of the Missouri State Highway Patrol SWAT team. She taught nearly every police officer in the Troop F area how to navigate the computer systems they would be required to use in their day to day job. She had a love of her job and for those she taught.
In early 2012, a group of Jefferson City leaders explored the possibility of developing a program to come to the aid of fallen police officers, fire fighters, ambulance personnel, and corrections officers that die in the line of duty. The organization, to be known as Safety Net, would be patterned after the very successful St. Louis program, Backstoppers. Upon learning of a line of duty death, Safety Net is designed to come to the aid of the family to provide financial support to assist with mortgage, student tuitions, and the day to day financial burdens the loss of a spouse can cause.
In the spirit of the many benefit BBQs Angie and Tim conducted, the concept of Angie-Palooza was borne. Angie loved nothing more than organizing, planning, and throwing parties and doing so to support worthy causes was especially near to her heart. Angie and Tim loved live music and as a tribute to her, The first annual Angie-Palooza will be held on June 15, 2013 at the Cole County fairgrounds. Various local bands will provide non-stop music during the day. Food venders will also be on site as well as a beer garden with live entertainment.
All proceeds from Angie-Palooza will go to support Safety Net and help it grow to encompass more agencies and assist the men and women of public safety. Currently, Safety Net will be in place for the police and sheriff's officers, firefighters, EMT's, and corrections officers of Cole County. It is anticipated Safety Net will grow to encompass surrounding counties very soon with a goal of providing coverage to all 13 counties of Troop F within the next couple of years.
Angie-Palooza will be a family friendly event with police/fire vehicles on scene for children to look at and officers to talk to, Jefferson City's best live music, and outstanding food and beverages on scene available for purchase.
This will be a "party" for all the right reasons and one you won't want to miss.
Bands are being scheduled now and will be posted shortly. There will be a beer garden, food, and drink available on premises.
