Kids with Cancer

Meet Harlem

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
January 1, 2014

At 7 years old, Harlem has already proven himself to be a powerhouse on the track and on the soccer field. Looking at him now, you never would guess that he was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 5. In fact, you might not have known it while he was in treatment, either — through round after round of chemotherapy, Harlem remained strong and lively as ever.

Despite a four-year age difference, Harlem and his older brother, Malcolm, are inseparable. When Harlem was in treatment, Malcolm cooked for his brother and carried him on his back wherever they went. Harlem looks up to his brother and says he wants to be a firefighter just like his dad.
