My Story

Alexander was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia B-Cell on March 22, 2021 at 3.5 years old. Our family has decided to get involved with St. Baldrick’s Foundation as they are one of the largest foundations that provides grants focused on better treatment options and cures solely for pediatric cancer. Alexander has received inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy, multiple lumbar punctures for intrathecal chemotherapy, bone marrow aspirations, several rounds of steroids, more blood work than the average person can imagine and many other minor medical interventions and supports since his diagnosis. While we have done the very best to continue to provide Alexander with a “normal” childhood, our wish is for better treatment options for children, parents and families that are forced to walk this long, bumpy road. Alexander completed treatment in October of 2023. After more than 2.5 years, even though he is scheduled to be done with treatment, he will continue to have frequent clinic visits for his blood to be monitored closely for any signs of a potential relapse. With your support for research for better treatment options and cures for children like Alexander, hopefully, this extensive and prolonged treatment can be replaced with something greater, shorter duration and fewer long term side effects. Thank you for supporting Alexander 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. Nobody plans or expects their child to be diagnosed with cancer, but if you or a family close to you happens to end up in these shoes, you’ll know that you’ve helped support better outcomes for children with cancer.
