My Story

Today I am 6 years with no evidence of disease. I beat the odds and get to be a normal kid again....not everyone gets that chance. I was 5 when I was diagnosed, and will be 12 in just a few months. I lost my hearing and wear hearing aides because of the chemo treatments, and my growth is stunted from the radiation. I still take each day on stride and love to share my story and encourage others to never give up.  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.

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
