He may be almost 18 years away from a beer himself, but residents are being encouraged to have a Beer for Thomas this weekend with the family hosting an event at the Hermidale Hotel.
Thomas was born on January 28 at Dubbo Hospital.
At only two days old flown to Westmead Hospital in Sydney where he underwent multiple MRI's CT and Biopsy's when his parents and doctors realised something was wrong.
When he was just five-weeks-old he was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma Cancer, with a tumor in his arm, shoulder and underneath his armpit.
Since the diagnosis the family have been torn apart.
To proceed with treatment Thomas needed to be near a major hospital due to his young age and high risk of infection.
The family made a decision with mother Stacey and Thomas moving to Perth so they could have the support of her family while Thomas gets the treatment he needs.
Father Mick and their three-year-old daughter came back to Hermidale, where Mick and Stacey manage the Hermidale Hotel.
Stace's sister Lauren Hedges started a GoFundMe page for the couple, which has so far raised $15,468, to help the family through Thomas' treatment.
"Since Thomas's birth, their local community stepped up without hesitation and held the fought whilst they where in hospital in Sydney. Both Stacey, Michael and their families will forever be grateful," Ms Hedges said.
"The community's support can only be described as incredible."
This weekend the family are calling on residents to join them at the Hermidale Hotel on Saturday from 4pm, to help them raise money for young Thomas.
Money raised will help the Wells-Budds fight Thomas' cancer and support the family as he undergoes a tailored therapeutic approach to his treatment.
He began chemotherapy on March 5, and will undertake 42 rounds of chemotheraphy, followed by a 26 week maintenance period and life long surveillance to ensure the cancer doesn't return.
Monies raised that are not utalised by the family will be split and donated to the Royal Flying Doctors and the Children's Cancer Foundation.
