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.  This diagnoses was life changing.  I was in my last year of high school, embarking on the next chapter of life.  Then, without warning...YOU HAVE CANCER...what?!?  The past 9 months have been the most difficult days of my life.  My mom, sister, and brothers have walked every step with me.  I seem to have more sick days than well days. We have been 3 hours from home since March and its August.  Financially my mom is really struggling.  Please help support organizations like this so there's help for families like mine.  GOD BLESS.
