Amagoia was a happy joy-filled girl who loved to laugh. She was a beautiful and intelligent. Her will to live was strong and helped carry us forward throughout her treatment. She loved playing with books and taking pictures and videos on the iPhone that she could watch later.
Even at a young age she taught us how to make the most out of life and enjoy every second. From heaven she encourages us to move ahead and do what we can to help find cures for childhood cancer. That is why we have started this Fund with St. Baldrick’s to support childhood cancer research. Amagoia remains in our hearts and minds every second, helping us to work together to conquer childhood cancer.
Donations given to the Amagoia Lazkano Fund go directly to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund lifesaving childhood cancer research around the world. The Foundation is guided by a Scientific Advisory Committee, comprised of leading experts in the childhood cancer community, to ensure that every dollar makes the greatest impact for kids with cancer.
These people make us smile - they’re the doers and money-raisers on behalf of the Amagoia Lazkano Fund. They’re shaving their heads, hosting events, starting fundraisers and more to make childhood cancer research possible.
Start your own St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event to raise money on behalf of our Hero Fund! You’ll be paired with a staff member who will walk you through every step of the process, and you’ll have fun knowing you’re doing a great thing for kids with cancer.
