We told you last week, how Thomas Ackley, Jr(TJ) is once again battling cancer, this time doctors say it is terminal. TJ’s family is NOT giving up hope and neither are his doctors.

They are working on a plan that will take TJ and his parents out of town for treatment. Friends, family and the community are stepping in to help out – and we hope you will, too.


Right now, Imagination Station is holding a basket raffle – at both their Alden and Batavia locations. For $10 per sheet, you can enter to win some amazing basket. All funds collected will go to 10-year-old TJ and his family. Medical and living expenses continue to mount – and right now – the only worry for this family should be their adorable, strong, always-smiling little boy.


You can find more information on Imagination Station’s Facebook Page:

You can also donate directly to the family here:


Thank you!
