Real Stories

Trish is determined to keep Tom present

After losing her son to brain cancer, Trish shares why it is important to keep Tom’s memory alive and how creating new traditions has helped.

Trish has identical twin boys Thomas and Cameron. Thomas was diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer in December 2017 when the boys were almost seven.

Thirteen months after the diagnosis, Tom passed away. Trish shares why it is so important to keep his memory alive, how connecting with others who have lost a loved one lightens the load, and how the Redkite bag will always be Tom’s red bag.
