Even before birth, it was determined that Timothy “Tinman” Brookshire’s conditions and birth defects were “not compatible with life.” His mother and father were told to enjoy their time with their son because he would likely only live for a few days. 7 years and 58 surgeries later, Timothy’s medical conditions include TOFPA – Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia (Heart Defect), Cleft lip and palate, Trisomy 16 (a chromosomal abnormality,) and Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). “Tinman” Brookshire has inspired people from across the country with his amazing story and his theme…”Don’t stop believing!” Timothy’s story has been covered by several local and national media outlets. He has thousands of followers on his Facebook page, “Miracle of Timothy The Tinman.” (https://www.facebook.com/MiracleOfTimothyTheTinman/info)

His Dream: We know that Timothy has been an inspiration for his community and thousands of followers across the country, but when Dream On 3 asked what has been his inspiration to keep fighting he responded with two words… TONY ROMO. His walls are decorated with pictures of Tony and his closet is filled with blue and silver jerseys. His mother tells stories of how Timothy’s journey has so closely mirrored Tony Romo’s career. She says “…when Tony goes down, so does Timothy. When Tony is on top of the mountain, so is Timothy. When Timothy sees Tony pushing through adversity, it gives him the strength and determination to do things that no one thought he could do. They have never met…but they have a connection that I could never begin to explain or understand.” ~ Crystal Brookshire
