Rooting for Thomas

We've found a community of heroes from across the country thanks to David and his team at Capital One. David was moved by the Goodwin Family's story and their determination to help every child who is in treatment here in Richmond. One of those children is Thomas, an 11-year-old boy. Thomas was a hero at a Heroes Art Ball after he was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer of the muscles and connective tissues in 2012. In September 2015, he learned the heart-breaking news that his cancer has returned – for a third time! He is back in treatment for his biggest fight yet. Connor's Heroes is there once again. Knowing Thomas is a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, Capital One employees from offices across the country got him a bag full of Seahawks merchandise, gift cards, and tickets to see them play the Baltimore Ravens in Decemeber – the day after his 12th birthday! Connor's Heroes worked with Capital One in getting it all to Thomas. It's a moment of great happiness for a wonderful boy.
