Your Real Champion for the week of June 27, 2021 was Tommy Ricci!
Tommy was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 3 1/2 years old. It was the gift of a teddy bear that pulled him through. As a survivor, he provides the same comfort and encouragement to other children facing cancer through his foundation called “Tommy’s Gifts for Kids”.
