A Look Back on Thomas' Wish

Wish Kid Thomas Header
At 15, the furthest thing from my mind was cancer in any form, let alone having cancer myself. When I started getting stabbing pains in my right knee, I assumed it was an injury or growing pains. For a time, doctors thought the same. But as time passed and the pain worsened, it became clear that something more than a simple injury was at hand. In March of 2007, after scans and x-rays, we discovered that there was a tumor the size of a fist growing on my knee.
