Tony and Christy Leonard were married in 2007 and have 5 boys.  Tony was diagnosed with Stage IIIB stomach cancer in Feb 2012.  After a total gastrectomy, chemo-radiation, and more chemo, he is cancer free!!!  Tony was only 39 years old when he was diagnosed, and there was no way Christy was going to leave his side.  Tony still has his struggles with eating and treatment recovery, but he is strong and continues to fight the fight.  His 2 year cancer free anniversary is on their son Aydin's birthday Feb 24. Tony and Christy are not new to tragedy.  100 days after Tony lost his brother to a heart attack, Christy lost her brother to lung cancer.  "We believe that life is short, and you must always stay positive."  They found Debbie's Dream Foundation and wanted to give back.  Their 13 year old son wrote Sen. Burr asking him to support stomach cancer, and Christy and Tony participated in the first DDF advocacy day.   They hope to continue providing support to family and friends and DDF.
