I'm a survivor. I got cancer at 31 years of age. 10 years ago. As an adult I assure you the TX ( treatment ) was very sickening. Made me forget I had
But I'm not going to talk about me.
Tattoo tom is a colleague, and all around great dad of a daughter whom passed away from cancer. He is who I wish to bring some attention.
I just got an email of his next venture. I cried a bit. Last year he ran 100 miles to raise awareness to childhood cancer. Tom was damn near crippled
by the end... not this dad! It was for his baby girl. He finished.
Now Tom is prepping to do 200 miles. He was doing a 50 mile run for practice. This practice run is going help to start in lake Tahoe. The elevation is
a breathing nightmare. I know because I grew up in the Reno/Tahoe area. What you won't see is this. Tom was almost ready to call it quits. But Tom
has a following. Out from a crowed of people, emerged a little girl.. bald from CA treatment.. he didn't know her. But she knew him. She grabbed his
hand and helped him finish what he started.
This man has given a speech at a TED talk conference. He's no joke. He's the guy that makes me call my dad just to say I love you.
I'll give you his web page.
Where do I come in... here's what I do.
( peaches custom paints shoes for very sick children ) go ahead! Ask if I can paint the cast of Frozen! Yes I can!
Our 2 organizations help each other a lot.. Tom paints shoes for us as well. This guy has art in his veins. What takes me a week. Tom cracks out in 2
days. Tom if you see this... I bid you everything I got!
Wanted to say. Part of my job is to register each child that comes across my board.. I have to log in the age, diagnosis, location and doctor...
We are 7 days into the new month. I have 26 cases of childhood cancers. I average 50+ new cases a month. That's to much
And with that I have to say... HEY ALABAMA AND ARKASAS! WTH!
So that's it. I don't want to bore yinz.
But with all the bickering happening here on ATS. Thought this might help knowing that there is a crowed out there that can't speak up like we
