My wife Melissa and I cannot express our gratitude for the support that was given to us by the wonderful organization, KidsRStrong2. Our daughter, Mikayla was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on December 31, 2014 and went peacefully to the Lord on December 10th, 2015. During this time, Tomika reached out to us and offered us great assistance. Tomika is truly an inspiration. Based on her own personal experience with childhood cancer, she founded a wonderful organization to offer services to families enduring similar situations. It has been a pleasure to meet and work with Tomika. Tomika initially met Mikayla by presenting her with a basketful of presents (the basket was bigger than Mikayla!). This simple gesture brought so much joy to our girl, who has been through so much. It warmed our hearts to know that there was an organization that reached out to families with childhood cancers. Our world was opened up to a wealth of resources, and we did not feel alone. Not only did Tomika offer services to Mikayla, she also provided Melissa and I with lunch on several occasions. Tomika even presented us with gift cards to assist us with any food purchases. KidsRStrong2 takes a holistic approach- catering to every family member and their needs. Tomika’s organization skills and resources were vital during Mikayla’s funeral services. She volunteered to put together all details of the reception- and our expectations were truly exceeded. Because of Tomika and KidsRStrong2, we were provided with a facility to accommodate all of our guests. She even had pictures of Mikayla set up as you entered the reception hall which was a nice personal touch to the event. During our time with Tomika, she was readily accessible, always just a phone call or text away. Tomika and KidsRStrong2 are true examples that the human spirit is alive and well. She has inspired Melissa and myself to also give back to others, as so much has been given to us during our journey. Any family enduring childhood cancer or illness has a difficult path ahead of them. KidsRStrong2 is a vital ally to have on your side, assisting in lifting the burden of simple necessities of life that may be neglected during difficult times. Tomika and KidsRStrong2 have been angels to Melissa and I, and we are forever grateful for their generosity during our times of need.
