My Story

In January of 2017, we took Addison to the pediatrician for her routine 18-month checkup. Her pediatrician noticed her liver felt enlarged during her abdominal check and sent her for further testing the next morning. Later the next day we received a call that we needed to take her immediately to the MUSC Children's Hospital ER where there was a team of doctors waiting for us. For our family the next few days felt like an eternity, waiting helplessly to hear the results of all the tests.  When we finally received the news that Addison had a rare form of liver cancer, Hepatoblastoma, we were devastated and completely shocked. She had been a totally healthy child with few illnesses up until this point. We ultimately knew that we could not dwell on the news, so we set our sites on a gameplan to beat cancer. After many nights in the hospital, surgery, ER visits and chemotherapy, Addison was able to ring the bell that her treatment was finished and she was cancer free!! Thanks to her team of medical professionals at MUSC Children's Hospital and her pediatrician for early diagnosis, Addison has now been cancer FREE for one year! We want to thank you for supporting Addie 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. It's up to all of us to help kick cancer's butt!!!
