Send a card and help cheer up Alden boy, TJ, who is battling terminal cancer

Our friend TJ Ackley of Alden simply amazes us. He’s battling terminal cancer and yet he remains strong each and every day. He’s grateful for anyone who brings him a smile and even says thank you on a regular basis by making short videos to those who have helped him. That’s why we wanted to ask all of you to please send TJ a card to cheer him up.

TJ’s mom, Kerry Miller, says TJ really loves animals, so if you find an animal card or have an animal photo, send it to TJ. He’s often bored in the hospital, so anything small he can do puts a big smile on his face.

You may send a card to:

Thomas Ackley Jr.

12885 Broadway St.

Apt. 7

Alden, NY 14004

Members of Sweet Buffalo Rocks are also hosting a Easter Egg Hunt fundraiser for TJ 10 a.m. Saturday, March 31 at Harlem Road Park in Buffalo. For more information, click here:
