Tommy's Education Fund

Tommy Sugrue is a two-year-old boy stuck in an unfortunate situation. His father, John, has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic malignant pheochromocytoma (a rare type of cancer) and will be lucky to make it to see his son turn 3 next July. His mother, Gemma, is both deaf and mute, and without her husband, she is unable to give Tommy the attention he needs to learn and grow. I recently came into the Sugrue's life when I heard they needed help with reading and talking to Tommy. With John not expected to live much longer, the family will need funds to pay for Tommy's education that he will be starting in the next few years. The Sugrue's will need to pay for someone to come talk to Tommy, school materials, and eventually for college. They are not able to make the money needed to provide Tommy with the life he deserves, so they need your help. With John's time running out, Gemma does not know what she will do after he is gone and does not know how she will provide for her son's needs. Anything helps, thank you!
