The League of Legendary Heroes is an order of dedicated volunteers who’ve participated in St. Baldrick’s Foundation events for three or more years. Each year, St. Baldrick’s names a League Champion to lead and inspire this group to raise money for lifesaving childhood cancer research.

Georgia Moore, our newest League Champion of the League of Legendary Heroes, just celebrated her 19th birthday on Dec. 30. The following day, New Year’s Eve, marked nine years since Georgia was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Meet the St. Baldrick’s 2019 Ambassadors!

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
January 7, 2019

Each year, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation picks five kids to serve as Ambassadors. In this role, they represent the thousands of kids affected by childhood cancers and remind us of the importance of supporting childhood cancer research.

Take any group of kids and they’ll all have their own way of talking, their own opinions on books, movies, and video games, their own favorite foods.

But there is one thing the St. Baldrick’s 2019 Ambassadors have in common: childhood cancers. Beyond that, they share the support of loving families and a desire to inspire others to raise money for childhood cancer research.

Employee Giving: How You and Your Employer Can Help Kids with Cancer

by Robyn Raphael, St. Baldrick's Foundation
October 18, 2018

It’s October again, which means kids across the country will be gearing up for another exciting Halloween. But did you know that October is also the month when many organizations help their employees with charitable donations?

That’s right – within many company cultures, October is known as “employee giving month”. It’s a great way to generate more revenue for your favorite charity – like the St. Baldrick’s Foundation!

This October, ask your employer for more information about some of the following popular fundraising options – it could make the difference in helping fund vital clinical trials investigating childhood cancers.

Wireless Vision employees know it takes vision to conquer childhood cancers. Through their company-wide campaign, six Wireless Vision locations hosted St. Baldrick’s signature head-shaving events and raised over $43,000!

Matching Gifts

A growing number of organizations are offering to match the charitable donations made by their employees, effectively doubling their total contribution. That said, some employers may take things a step further by matching gifts at a higher ratio, like 2:1, 3:1, even 4:1 – in essence, it’s possible that for every dollar you contribute, your employer may double, triple, even quadruple your offering!

Please keep in mind that every organization has its own gift-matching policy, so consider asking your human resources representative for more information about how this is handled at your company. You can also use our matching gifts tool to see what’s available at your organization.

Meet the 20-Year Childhood Cancer Survivor Who Proved Her Doctors Wrong

by Erinn Jessop, St. Baldrick's Foundation

Rebecca Morrow with her daughter

Rebecca smiles with her 2-year-old daughter, Sophie.

Childhood cancer had already taken so many things from Rebecca Morrow. During treatment, her hair dropped out twice. She missed her entire seventh-grade year. Her social life evaporated. The treatment devastated her developing body. Sometimes when treatment got really tough, her drive to survive crumbled.

So, when the doctors told a teenage Rebecca that she’d likely never have children of her own, she shrugged it off.

Rebecca had already lost so much to childhood cancer. What was one more thing?
