Helping light the night for cancer research

The latest issue of the Arlington Catholic Herald, newspaper of the Diocese of Arlington, Va., highlights a little boy who is suffering from leukemia.

According to the story by Dave Borowski, 8-year-old Tomas Nichols has endured more than two years of spinal taps, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants and more. That’s almost more than an adult could endure, but  Tomas is persevering and not just for himself: He’s helping raise money to fund cancer research.

His parents say their school and church communities have been a big support for the family. “Our faith helps us as a family,” says his mom, Lenka. With what Tomas and his family are going through, “all the little things in life that you thought were important are not important,” adds his dad, Paul.
