Quinlan Steele Thomas, age 3, our bravest little warrior, left our loving arms on Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014. For most of his young life, Quinlan fought a rare form of Leukemia with strength and courage beyond his young age. His resiliency became known as the "Q Factor" within the halls of VCU Medical Center and all that knew him.
