Bernie(LEFT) and Julianne(RIGHT) Thon(cq) sit together and remember their son Evan. They are in Evan's room upstairs where he kept his valuable collection of favorite artist Joan Miro and held a love of all music close to his heart. Two of his grandparents are jazz musicians. While alive, they both thought they were fighting for Evan. Now, they realize they are fighting to get disabled children off waiting lists and help other families who are struggling to take care of their children. "I don't remember a time when he was not happy", Bernie Thon said. Evan Thon,9, died last saturday. At age two he was diagnosed with mitochondrial disorder in addition to an autism spectrum disorder. Due to financial constraints, Evan no longer received private physical, occupational or behavioral therapies for his development. Without the services his condition steadily declined. He has been on the CES list since March 23, 2003.
