Daisy is a little spitfire.
Her contagious joy, laughter and strength radiates within her, helping her to persevere in whatever struggles she has had to endure. She was only six years old when she was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma. A type of aggressive brain cancer. Her doctors told her parents that if her cancer came back, there was nothing they could do as her cancer didn't respond to therapy a second time.
When it came back, just days before Daisy's eighth birthday, we all knew we were in the ultimate fight for her life.
With this fund, we hope to work with some of the top doctors to increase survival rates and HOPE for children who have relapsed disease.
Donations given to the Hope for Daisy Research Fund for Pediatric Brain Tumors 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 Hope for Daisy Research Fund for Pediatric Brain Tumors. 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.
