At the University of Florida, Tony began his sock designing career with the help of a Patient Ambassador, Abigail Schirmer, and University of Florida student artist, Serena Carton. Based on Tony’s favorite game, Agar.io, small circles were scattered among the sock’s base with words such as family, friends, faith, and love—the things that Tony held closest to his heart. The sole of Tony’s sock displays I love you, which he said often to just about anyone. Around the top of his sock displays Tony’s catchphrase, “I feel soooo good.” Lastly, a gator representing his time at UF and a Florida State spear, illustrating Tony and his family’s love for the Seminoles.

Anthony (Tony) Angel

“I feel sooo good,” aren’t exactly the words you’d expect to hear from a seven-year-old boy with terminal cancer. Each time friends and family would ask Anthony Angel how he was feeling during rounds of taxing therapy, Anthony always responded the same, “I feel soooo good.”

Cared for by his parents, Rosa and Jonathan, and four older sisters, Anthony was encircled in a sea of love and affection through his last days. Never straying for from the bedside, his family was his rock. Anthony, or Tony as his family calls him, was diagnosed with a brain tumor (malignant anaplastic ependymoma) when he was 15 months old. After undergoing surgery and months of radiation, Tony’s MRI scans came back clear and would remain clear until age five.

Following his healthcare team’s move from North Carolina to UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital in Florida, Tony has been undergoing treatment since his reoccurrence two years ago. Here at UF, Tony began his sock designing career with the help of a Patient Ambassador, Abigail Schirmer, and University of Florida student artist, Serena Carton. Based on Tony’s favorite game, Agar.io, small circles were scattered among the sock’s base with words such as family, friends, faith, and love—the things that Tony held closest to his heart. The sole of Tony’s sock displays I love you, which he said often to just about anyone. Around the top of his sock displays Tony’s catchphrase, “I feel soooo good.” Lastly, a gator representing his time at UF and a Florida State spear, illustrating Tony and his family’s love for the Seminoles.

Even over the course of many emergent intensive care unit admissions, Tony fought to smile another day, give another high five, and a never ending thumbs up. Due to Tony’s healthcare complications, the prototype of his sock was rushed to Gainesville so that Tony could see it and wear his design. On Wednesday, July 19th, Tony received his socks, his family was overjoyed, and he whispered a loving “thank you”. A week later, Wednesday July 26th, Tony passed away.
