18-year-old Tony loves listening to and playing music. He suffers from a rare form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, called T-Cell Lymphoma, and spends much of his time in Texas in order to receive treatment. Music has been such an inspiration for Tony, especially that of Andrew McMahon who also lives with T-Cell Lymphoma. Tony’s number one wish was for the opportunity to meet Andrew and go to one of his concerts. As fate would have it, his latest visit date corresponded with Andrew’s concert at First Ave, and he was able to attend with his good friend, Nathan. “Little Tony”, as his family refers to him, was shaking with excitement upon meeting one of his favorite performers.
