BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Dimas Cintron, originally from Cleveland, Ohio made his way to central Florida in 2001. A few short years later, he became the father to a very special little boy, Dimas Armani Cintron, Jr.
Dimas, Armani, or “Little D” was a typical little boy, he loved sports, especially basketball. And, he was quite good at it. Things were going well until he started to have balance problems. After a series of exams, the unthinkable was the diagnosis. Dimas had cancer.
After a courageous battle, Dimas passed away on February 15, 2016, at the age of seven. However, he has not left us. Cintron has written a book entitled, “No Footprint is Too Small.”
It is a special book, in that not only can it help those cope with the loss of a child, but anyone that has had to deal with death.
