THOMAS

On March 28th, 2016, our 6 year old went to the doctor for headaches; by that evening we were coming to terms with an unimaginable reality; a Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor (brain tumor.) 

Thomas has used his Kindle constantly since he received it. He has Skyped with his class a few times and was able to participate in the "me bag." We sent 3 things that Thomas likes in a bag to school and then while his class was on Skype he was able to tell them about the 3 items and a little about himself as well.

Thomas will also use his Kindle to communicate with his older sister while he is getting chemotherapy. The hospital is just far enough away that we are separated for a few days. With school and traffic, we just can't spend the time together, but virtually it's nice to connect through Skype.
