My Story

James is a charming boy with blue eyes and curly blond hair. He has the most amazing dimpled smile that lights up the world. He loves life and played his way through treatment. He was only two years old when he was diagnosed with a hard-to-treat subtype of cancer. When James was diagnosed there hadn’t been any kids who lived more than 36 months and his prognosis was not good.  James fought cancer bravely and never let the poor prognosis keep him down. There were many days when he was playing in the hospital hallways while getting chemo dispensed from an IV. He likes spending time with his friends and family.   He loves playing video games. He also likes to play card games and board games. He is in beginner band this year. He is learning to play the trumpet. His favorite subject in school is science. He wants to grow up and become a computer programmer. He fund-raises every Spring for St. Baldrick’s Foundation. He has shaved for the brave for 6 years and was top fundraiser for 3 of those years. His most cherished possession is his top fundraiser medal. His goal this year is to be top fundraiser again. He wants to help all children survive cancer.  Thank you so much for supporting St.Baldrick’s Foundation. The contributions will be used to make a difference for kids like James. His survival was not considered likely and there was no proven effective treatment for his cancer. Because of charity James got a new type of treatment and he has been in remission since 2010. He is now considered cured! Your support will give kids the same kind of outcome as James. Thank you for making a difference. Thank you for helping fund cures for kids!
