Mimi is a vibrant young child fighting Acute Lympoblastic Leukemia. Shortly after her September 2014 diagnosis she became “Mighty Mimi”. Her bravery is unparalleled. Mimi is "fighting the bad guys" with the strength of a superhero! The Mighty Mimi Fund will inspire and unite us to raise awareness and funding for lifesaving childhood cancer research so that we can all say “KAPOW” to cancer.

Mimi was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on September 19, 2014 after cancer cells were found in a routine blood draw for stomach pain.

It is truly the fight of Mimi's life and the biggest challenge we have faced. Support from friends and family has been incredible and we can't thank you enough for all you have done and are doing for Mimi and our family.

Pediatric cancer research is very underfunded and lags behind adult cancer research. While great gains have been made in the last two decades, there is still much to discover. Treatments and medications for children are strong, toxic and can have difficult near and long term side effects.

Some pediatric cancers have high survival rates while others do not. We want every child to have a fighting chance and to survive. ALL has a good treatment outcome and high survival rates but the treatment is long and hard on the child. And until there is a 100% survival rate, there is work to be done.

We feel so thankful that the research thus far has allowed ALL to have good outcomes and we want doctors and scientists to continue making advances in the field so treatments are more effective, less toxic, and so more children can celebrate more birthdays year after year.

Please join Mighty Mimi on her battle ahead and donate to support pediatric cancer research. Help us say "KAPOW" to cancer!

 Where does the money go?

Donations given to the Mighty Mimi Hero Fund have funded the first year of a St. Baldrick's Scholar grant for Mark Osborn Ph.D. Dr. Osborn is researching ways to improve CAR T-cell immunotherapy leukemia treatments at the University of Minnesota. 

The St. Baldrick's 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.
