Tommy has since lost one of his legs, according to family friend and neighbor Dina Pepi.
Pepi is one of many people on Tommy Team Support Group, a collective of Tommy's friends and family building emotional and financial support for the Cox family.
The website is a one-stop place for supporters to learn about fundraising efforts, donate money, chat in discussion forums, view/post photos and more.
"The family is so thankful by the outpouring of support people have shown," Pepi wrote in an email to supporters. "They wanted us to pass along a word of thanks to everyone for stepping up to help out in some way. While Tommy continues to make amazing strides every day, he has a long road of recovery ahead of him."
