My Story

Tommy is a little superhero, simply put. It is hard to describe this little human being in two paragraphs but I will try. Tommy has been fighting for his life since the day he was born. Although always with a smile so the fight is not always evident. Tommy loves his 3 siblings to pieces. His mom has recieved a lifetime of kisses (though she wants 10 lifetimes more) and he always HAS to call his dad from clinic to tell him what a great job he did that day. Tommy likes animals but only from a safe distance! His favorite thing to do is go to pre-school and music class but his very favorite is to snuggle on the couch and watch Spongebob. Tommy has both Brain Tumors from Neurofibromatosis and CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia) He may need a bone marrow transplant in the near future. We are extremely lucky that his big sister is a match.
