My Story

Tommy was a very enigmatic boy, full of love and life. He was diagnosed at the age of 9, and quickly learned to adjust to his new lifestyle and the complications that came with it, yet never complained. He was active as long as possible, going to kid's camp, school, and having sleepovers with friends. He loved to play his video games, and watch football & hockey. The original prognosis given was six months, but Tommy battled his way through 10 before moving on to whatever awaits us after this mortal life. His presence can be felt still today and he is sorely missed by all that knew and loved him.
