Fundraising

Your donations fund lifesaving children’s cancer research

$127,907 raised
$100,000 goal

Message

Did you know that 300,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year? And in the U.S., one in five will not survive. I want to change that, so I'm raising money to find cures.

Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.

So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids.
