My Story

Teddy was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his spinal column and lower brain on Jan 12, 2010. Since then he's braved neurosurgery, paralysis, multiple recurrences, two-and-a-half years of weekly chemo, daily radiation...and always wondering what’s lurking deep down inside.

Despite all this, he continues to fill our home with laughter, joy...and in Teddy fashion, always keeps us guessing what he's gonna do next...
