Prayers for Homer

Vermont's own Homer Simpson (Tim Kavanagh) spent the 10th anniversary of Springfield's big Simpsons day event in a Boston hospital recovering from major cancer surgery.

Tim played Homer in the Springfield, Vermont entry in the Simpsons Hometown Challenge video contest back in 2007. He also wrote the script and directed it. Then when our video beat out the 13 other entries, he served as master of ceremonies at The Simpsons Movie world premiere event held in Springfield on Saturday, July 21, 2007.

Tim's partner Candy Weston wrote on Tuesday:
This day comes to a close full of gratitude that the love of my life, Tim Kavanagh, made it safely through surgery, and even requested to stand, and take a couple steps. He's over another hurdle and accomplished it with great faith, appreciation poured out to his surgical team, nursing staff, and family. He showed great strength, sensitivity and courage. He has a long way yet on his journey to heal but finally we can do just that and put yet another challenging chapter behind us. Together we can do anything. Thank you for standing behind us, being the wind in our sails. Much love and gratitude goes out to you all.
