Hello, I'm Michael Carroll I'm 16 Years Old from Wheeling West Virginia. In 2003 I was diagnosed with Leukemia. After 3 years of treatments life returned to normal. On June 17th 2013 I was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Grade IV Brain Tumor due to the radiation treatment I received for Leukemia
Once I got home from the hospital I came up with the idea of the "3 Meanies" based upon the 3 different types of childhood cancer.
Terry "The Terrible" Tumor
He is for children that have a tumor
She is for children that was diagnosed with Lymphoma
"Lousy" Louie Leukemia
He is for the child that has Leukemia
"I wanted to give something to the kids that they could take their anger out on. I thought of making these into a stress ball like toy that the kids can squeeze hard, punch or even throw them.
My ultimate goal is for every child diagnosed with cancer to get one during their treatment".
