My Story

Timothy is an energetic 5 year old boy. He loves throwing rocks and sticks into the water, climbing, jumping, swinging, Legos, video games, and unfortunately, picking his nose. :-) He hates vegetables, sitting still, being separated from his 6 year old brother and best friend, and having band aids removed. When his hair started coming out from the chemo, he had a great time pulling it all out in big handfuls and making a nice pile of it. He said he was making a nest to put in the backyard when he gets home. He is sweet and kind and very strong willed.
