“I believe that everyone can be happy. I dream that nobody harmed anybody. I try and make the world a better place. I hope I am making a difference. I am gentle but strong” – Tyler Hallsey
On February 8, 2013 Tyler Hallsey was diagnosed with Pontine Glioma which is a tumor surrounding the brain stem.
On June 13, 2014 the community of Anthem said goodbye to our superman, Tyler Hallsey. He fought hard and made a difference in our hearts!
Josh Coppoth had emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor last year, and since then has bravely faced a grueling regimen of radiation and chemotherapy. He will receive his last full chemotherapy treatment on May 1. Josh has managed to maintain straight As in school even though he has been homebound through most of this year. He has been named the recipient of the Anderson Security Citizenship Award for 2008 because of his ability to share his bravery with a soldier in Iraq. Josh has decided he wants to be a doctor when he grows up so that he can repay in someway those that have been there for him.
Brooke York was just four years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Brooke’s battle was not an easy one. Numerous chemotherapy treatments, injections and transfusions left her tired and weak. But her will to survive was strong, helped no doubt by the outpouring of support and attention she received from We Care and the Anthem community.
“My husband and I are overwhelmed by what has happened in the community. Strangers are fund-raising for our family,” said Brooke’s mother, Redonna. “It’s amazing!”
Brooke’s cancer is in remission.
Jeremy Pascua was hospitalized when he was only six months old with the flu and pneumonia and was subsequently diagnosed with a heart condition — cardiomyopathy, or an enlarged heart. He has to take medically prescribed supplements and prescriptions, which We Care subsidizes.
His heart condition has improved dramatically. At the beginning of his illness his ejection fraction (the percentage of blood that is pumped out of a filled ventricle with each heartbeat) was at 19 percent — normal is 60 percent. Jeremy, now four years old, is still improving!
The family also has been given the rental management responsibilities of a Bounce Around inflatable party activity, The Castle. A portion of the proceeds from the rentals goes into Jeremy’s account.
