My Story

On July 26, 2016 our lives would be forever changed when 5 oncology doctors stood before us and explained to us that our daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia and would need chemo for 2.5 years. Gabriella only cried about two things when she was diagnosed. One of those things was losing her hair. We were told she would be bald in 2-3 weeks. After 11 weeks of treatments Gabriella still had her hair! She bravely asked her father if she could shave off her hair. She said that she wanted the other kids at the hospital who were bald to feel beautiful. Gabriella is a brave, hilarious, spunky, fashionista, comedian, loving, old soul leukemia warrior! Will you join us for this fundraiser. We would love to have a huge team of people willing to be brave like Gabriella and shave their heads in honor of her. Let's make these kids with cancer feel beautiful! 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.
