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 one month after my 5th birthday. I had been in treatment ever since but only to keep my cancer under control (Hypopigmentated Mycosis Fungoides). In Sept. 2019, my treatment stopped working and a new journey began. We have been receiving a different (experimental) type of treatment with hopes of remission. My goal is to be cancer free by my tenth birthday (March 19). I have been living with cancer for more then half my life but finally there is hope that this will be my last year. If this treatment works for me, I am hoping this will be the beginning of all childhood treatment/remission.
