My Story

Cole is a bouncing 2-year-old who was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer called Retinoblastoma earlier this year. Due to the size of the tumor, his right eye had to be removed. The pathology reports found that the tumor had spread beyond his eye, therefore he had to start chemotherapy. None of this has stopped Cole from doing what every 2 year old does--having fun!! You would never know by looking at him that he has gone through any of this. He is on the go from the moment he wakes up, until the moment he goes to bed. Cole is an amazing little boy with a giant heart. He loves his baby brother Jack and can't wait to make him smile and laugh. Cole is in love with Mickey Mouse and The Wiggles and enjoys singing their songs in the car or at home. Cole is a hero in his mommy and daddy's eyes, no doubt about it!!!
