Timothy Pauxtis was a sweet, blue-eyed, curious and loving little boy who at the age of 8 was diagnosed with an inoperable thalamic astrocytoma (brain tumor). Timmy underwent 3 chemotherapies, radiation, hospital stays and more for 17 months before we lost him to cancer. Timmy loved to bike ride, play video games, sing and wanted to become a policeman one day. The NJ State Police were very active in Timmy's life during his illness. Timmy loved his life, his family and friends, and was incredibly brave through all his treatments. He told me once that he would be fine because children didn't die. It's been over 4 years since we lost Timmy to brain cancer. We miss and love him so very much.
