Tommy Cox, 10, lost one leg and sustained other severe injuries in a boating accident in September. As medical costs rise, the Cox family -- which includes parents John and Julie and siblings Johnny, Rachel and Charlie -- have some help coming from their community.
Tommy -- who attends Sargent Elementary School and enjoys wrestling, lacrosse and football -- has had multiple surgeries since the accident and will require extensive medical treatment in the future.
When he is stable, Tommy is set to be transferred from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire to Spaulding Rehab in Boston. And when he comes home, his family will have to remodel their home to accommodate his needs.
In all, Tommy Strong has raised $42,000.
