Tommy Calder, beautiful soul/enthusiastic drummer, has been diagnosed with leukemia and has been airlifted to treatment. His family has been advised that his father must take leave from work during this tragic time. Tommy and his family are facing 3 years of treatment, including chemo and surgery, which, due to the urgency of his medical need, have already begun. Thus the urgency of our request. Travel expenses are beyond the family's means right now.
We are asking everyone moved by Tommy's story to do whatever they can to ease the enormous burden on this lovely family as to make their time together as rich as possible.
I met Tommy's father, Robert through our "Band of Brothers" page for fathers of children with Down Syndrome. His obvious love and wholehearted inclusion of little Tommy really touched my heart as serendipity brought us together as family with a love common.
Anything at all that anyone can do to help the hardworking, loving family of this very special little wonder is very much appreciated.
In our common love for one another,
Kim and Lida Holloway
