My Story

As a 5-time survivor of chemotherapy and a daily survivor of brain and optic nerve tumors, Tony would be extremely grateful if the funding provided by St. Baldrick's would lead to a cure that would help him escape from this bad dream. He so desires to be like a regular kid - playing sports, running around and doing the kinds of things we all took for granted when we were kids. Instead, he cheers (quite loudly) from the sidelines, encourages others to do their best and plays his sports on Wii. He has just enough vision left to 'snow' people into thinking that he does not even have a disability...not b/c he does not want people to know, but b/c, at the end of the day, it doesn't define who he is.
