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. My son Jake was diagnosed in June 2012 with brain cancer. He underwent 13 1/2 hours of surgery to remove the tumor and then 6 straight weeks of daily radiation at the James. He was in remission for almost 3 to the date and then was re-diagnosed in June 2015 with a re-occurrence of two new tumors. He then endured 4 months of chemo and another surgery to remove the tumor. We then went to New York City for a clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering where they injected liquid radiation directly into his spinal fluid. As of August 2016 he is now 6 months into remission. We are praying that this clinical trial, which is brought to us by generous donation, will be the cure for his cancer! We cannot thank everyone enough for their generous support through our journey and every family who has to endure living with the knowledge and fear that their child has cancer and may not survive without your help for a cure!
