Tim Malone was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma on January 7, 2010. He was sixteen-years-old and a sophomore at Paramus Catholic High School. Tim underwent five months of chemotherapy followed by four months of radiation therapy. On September 23, 2010 Tim was declared CANCER FREE and is now considered CURED. Tim is a strong believe that cancer is not a death sentence - he is living proof of this.
Tim has made it his mission to bring awareness to teen cancer survivors. He has spoken at numerous events over the years in support of those battling this disease. During treatments, Tim made cancer revolve around his schedule, not the other way around. Although sometime very stubborn, Tim made sure that he lived his life. Those around him can attest that his consistent positive attitude led to him successfully kicking cancer to the curb.
Another one of Tim's missions is to give back to those who aided him and his family in battling this disease. The Tomorrow Children's Fund (TCF) was a major player in Tim's battle. TCF not only helped Tim his journey, but his entire family as well. Tim now volunteers with TCF at every chance he gets. Tim leads the efforts of the 50/50 at the TCF Annual Tricky Tray, last year raising over $8000 for TCF. Every year at Christmas time Tim, along with his fraternity Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, sing Christmas Carols to the children receiving treatment at Hackensack University Medical Center. Bringing a smile to those children's faces is priceless for Tim - they forget about their disease and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas, if only for a minute.
Tim graduated from William Paterson University in January 2017 and is currently the Coordinator of High School and Young Adult Ministry at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Pompton Lakes, NJ. Tim is also a Lieutenant-EMT with Mahwah Emergency Medical Services in Mahwah, NJ.
