My Story

Our little Toby is a wonderful little boy. He is so brave and strong without even knowing it. He was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 2 1/2 in August 2005. It was devastating, however his prognosis was very good. Toby started chemo immediately and has done well (or as well as can be expected) ever since. The first seven months were very difficult, but Toby was a trooper and got through it. He is now in remission and is in maintenance treatment. Toby is very sweet, active, quite in public - not so much at home, and funny. He loves his little 2 year old brother Hayden and is proving to be a very good big brother. He like the zoo, playing in the park, likes to color and work on puzzles. He hates pokies and taking his medicine. We are the luckiest parents in the world to have him as our son.
