SPECIAL SHOUT OUT : Tommy Minervini turns 9 today, and plenty of people want him to know how special he is — including us.
Tommy loves football and dogs. He’s a sweet boy, but tough — “the toughest kid I know,” said Mary Beth Lane Nappi, president of the PTO at Julia A. Traphagen School in Waldwick, where Tommy is in third grade.
Tommy has a brother, Steven, in 5th grade and a toddler sister, Harley. His parents, Kelly and Anthony, and extremely active at the school, while Anthony coaches boys football and soccer.
Tommy has non-Hodgkin lymphoma and just got back from his third round of chemo. One more to go.
He doesn’t know it, but there are other surprises lined up today besides this online greeting .
We hope this day is all you wish for, Tommy — and many, many more to come, kiddo.
