Help Tommy Fight Osteosarcoma Cancer

My name is Sean Holback. I am reaching out to our community for help. My best friend Tommy Poulin broke his femur on April 2nd 2019 and was taken to Sharon Hospital around 5 pm. After x-rays were taken he was immediately airlifted to The Children's Trauma Center in Hartford, CT. This accident has led to a diagnosis of Osteosarcoma (cancer of the bone) in his right thigh.  Tommy is a happy, hard working, loved by many 17 year old who was supposed to graduate from  Pawling High school in just 2 months. Tommy was on a downhill ski racing team for most of his life and has always been very active in sports. He also loves diesel trucks and riding dirt bikes and quads. His family is hoping to get him transferred to Sloan Kettering in Manhattan to see a specialist in the type of cancer he has and to get the right course of treatment. As you can imagine this is a tough time on him and his family as they have a long, hard road ahead of them as it remains one of the most rare and difficult to treat cancers. I am reaching out to ask for your help. Please consider a donation of any size to help my friend and his family cover current and future medical expenses. Your donation will go directly to him so that he is able to combat costs, and focus on the most important thing, getting better. He and his family are extremely thankful for all the love and support he has and will continue to receive.  Thank you so much!
