WHO WE'RE DOING IT FOR
Thomas Mcgoldrick is now 12 years old. He was born at 26 weeks, just 1 lbs. 13 oz. and was 19 inches long. Tommy spent 120 days of his life in the NICU fighting for his life. He’s proved to be a fighter ever since. He’s been diagnosed with spastic quad cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and cortical visual impairment. Tommy is the son of Michelle and John McGoldrick. John was a lifelong North Rockland resident and a retired NYPD officer. Following 9/11, John spent many days and months at Ground Zero helping with recovery efforts. John passed away suddenly in June 2020 at the height of Covid of a heart attack at the young age of 48. John and Michelle were the sole caregivers for Tommy. Michelle now cares for Tommy and is his primary caregiver and provider, while working a full-time job. Tommy and Michele reside in the Harbors in Haverstraw. As Tommy continues to grow up and become bigger, it has required Michelle to purchase additional medical equipment to help with Tommy’s day to day needs.
