My Story

Always up and energetic, even if the blood counts never matched his attitude, a prankster and comedian Joseph loved making everyone laugh. He developed a great passion for creating music on the computer just like his big "bro" (Jason). Loved to play chess with dad and pray every night with mom. Joseph was never serious in photos, had many goofy expressions making everyone around him smile, mom's partner in thrill rides and water slides. Joseph was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia in 2000 when he was only 3 years old. In Joseph's memory we Thank You! for supporting 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.
