My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. I was diagnosed with unilateral Retinoblastoma at just 3 weeks old. Because of this disease, I was born blind in my left eye, and at 3 weeks, had to have my left eye removed. Thankfully, this removed the only cancer that was found. I am now in a maintenance period where I have to have my right eye examined every 6 weeks to check and make sure no cancer develops in this eye. And if it does, my great team of doctors will treat it immediately so that we can make sure I don't lose my right eye also.

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Who's Honoring Me

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
