What would Thomas do?

When we asked ourselves, “What would Thomas do” if he had the opportunity, it was clear he would want to help others who found themselves in a similar situation. Even as Thomas battled a rare and aggressive form of cancer, he was always more concerned about others than himself. We know there will never be another Thomas, but we can do everything in our power to carry on as we believe he would have. We hope to emulate his good character by helping adolescent and young adult cancer patients and providing a living legacy that helps students at his alma mater.

Significance of Turtles

After Thomas passed, several people who knew him were put in the path of a turtle or turtles. The situations were too coincidental to ignore. We believe the turtles to be a sign from Thomas and his way of connecting with those he loves. For this reason, turtles have a special significance to us.

Shine Bright with Us

The Thomas Matthew Miloscia Foundation holds numerous events throughout the year to raise the money and awareness needed to further our mission. Check out our events to see how you can get involved!


In an effort to help those with cancer, we provide grants to patients, support local hospitals and programs, as well as, provide “be a bright spot” gift bags to patients.


Thomas embodied the character, faith and fortitude that’s the model for every Chaminade student, and his school was a source of strength and compassion during his illness.
