Please help support Thomas with this chronic neurological diagnosis.

Thomas is severely dyslexic. He was diagnosed at four years of age with learning disabillities and has struggled. He attended alot of different schools until we found one that could meet his needs, we found The Gow School for high school.

Now as a young adult he is attending Curry College, a special college that provides him with extra support classes, specialized equipment for reading, writing and math.

Although he must work harder than any other student, he does not give up. He wants to graduate from college. The cost of this specialzed education is unbeliveable. He will have to pay back over $120,000.00 in loans. Thomas cannot get extra scholarships due to the severity of his leaning dissablitly.

This is a neurological disorder and he will always need extra help, books on cd's and equipment to read and write with. All of which is costly.

Thomas is know as "The Gentle Giant" or "Big Tom." To talk to him you would not realize how learning disabled he is. He has a great sence of humor, is kind and polite and this neurologic diagnosis dyslexia hides behind it.
