When Tierney was 6-yeas-old, he had a golfball-sized tumor removed from his pituitary gland. Although the surgery was a success, it left him with long term medical issues including diabetes insipidus, hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency and hypothalamic obesity.
Fortunately, Tierney and his family — mother, father, 2 brothers and grandparents — found support at Cancer Support Community Arizona.
Now, 12-years old, Tierney has the confidence to attend programs alone. He attends our youth (ages 5–12), and teen (ages 13–21) programs which give him independence and opportunities to connect with other children his age impacted by cancer.
Some of Tierney’s favorite events are from our expressive arts programs. When asked what he likes most about those classes, he said “It’s not ‘You must do it this way’ or ‘don’t do it that way!’ It’s my imagination. It can never be wrong”.
Although Tierney and his family will always be impacted by cancer, Cancer Support Community Arizona will always be here for them. As he puts it, “They’re here for you! You can share your feelings and it’ll make you feel better because you’re not the only one. They make me feel better, so I know they’ll make you feel better.”
