Photo: “Tommy Smith Jr is a 7th grader at Faith Academy. In the fourth grade, he wrote a paper on breast cancer even though no one in his family had been diagnosed with the disease. Remembering what he learned from that assignment, he asked his dad if he could paint his go-cart pink for the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Tommy has been racing go-carts since he was three years old. His first pink go-cart race with be October 6 in Pensacola. The go-cart is on display in the Providence Cancer Center lobby. Breast cancer patients are encouraged to come by and sign the go-cart. Tommy’s family as well as Providence Hospital’s Breast Friends Breast Cancer Support Group are very proud of his concern for those who are living with or who have survived breast cancer. Pictured with Tommy are Breast Friend members (L – R) Kay Watson, Robi Jones, Wendy Harrison, Marcia Carrier and Paula Moore.  Tommy and his pink go-cart will make a special appearance at Camp Bluebird, Providence Hospital’s adult cancer camp, which will be held October 10-12.”

This young man is amazing! It was a privilege to get to meet him – and sign my name on his go-cart!
