My Story

Thomas is an 12 year old 7th grader who had acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the age of 3 and went through over three years of chemotherapy. In November 2007, 3 months after he had officially been off treatment for 5 years, he relapsed. He has been receiving treatment in Austin, Texas and is projected to be off treatment in March of 2011. He plays guitar, practices the Korean martial art of Kuk Sool Won (brown belt with 7 black stripes), likes reading manga, playing video games, and hanging out with his friends and dog, Mystery. He's also into newspaper journalism these days.
