The reason that Mrs. Jerome had told her class that Tom had collapsed, was, the fact
that she cared for all her students, and she didn't like to keep secrets, from the
adoring class. Mike, a kid in the class, who close friends with Tom, approached Mrs.
Jerome, and started to cry, because, His only friend was collapsing, due to a brain
tumor. The whole class soon joined in with him, they couldn't believe what had
happened to one of their fellow students, whom had brought so much life to the class,
"He doesn't deserve it, No one does, it is too much suffering for a classmate of ours
to go through," said Kayla. That week they didn't get any homework from any
teachers, and they were planing a suprise for Tom. Soon it started to become as if
the whole school was affected by one student not being there, and this was true,
because of Tom's brother and sisters, and cousins, May, Lola, Harry, Matt, Kyle, Mary
Catherine, Ned, and Elise, they were all concerned for the health of that one person.
For a while they all tried to stick together, as a support system, but, if one
person felt sad, soon they all felt sad. Tom even began to show signs of doubt for
his recovery, but Tom's mom, told him that everything would be fine. Tom's class
missed him very much, and Tom wished to be back there, learning with all the other
8th graders. Then one day Tom's Doctor, Dr. Khal, said that they could do an
operation to remove the cancerous tumor. Tom was extatic, beacuse after the
operation, he would be able to go back to school like a normal kid.
