Torence Thomas was diagnosed with cancer at 3 months old. He underwent his last chemotherapy treatment at 5 months, and today he’s in remission. His story has captured the hearts of the Mahoning Valley community.
As March 3 quickly approached, I prepared my 1st grade classroom at Walker Elementary School in Canton for my long-term substitute. My husband, Aaron, a sergeant in the Ohio National Guard, prepared his tasks for the 2 weeks he’d be out. My 2-year-old son, Landon, and 8-year-old stepdaughter, Kaitlyn, ran around with excitement as the arrival of their little sister grew closer.
