My Story

Ania was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma (Cancer of the retina) in her left eye in October 2013. After 10 rounds of chemotherapy and eventual removal of her left eye as a result of the Cancer, we are happy to report she is in remission.Throughout her treatment, Ania aka "The Dainty Warrior", kept up amazing spirit- specifically,  her creative spirit blossomed! She not only loves to dance ballet, she is quite a talented painter. She has painted over 50 paintings and has sold them and donated some of her proceeds to St Baldricks to help other kids like her! See Ania's artwork here in her online store: Www.etsy.com/shop/daintywarrior Thank you for supporting Ania 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.
