My Story

On October 18, 2021, we were given the worst news that no parent should ever have to hear… your child has cancer. At the age of 4, Beckett was no longer an energetic and playful kid like his siblings and friends. He was living with unexplainable pain and illness for two months before a bone marrow biopsy finally told us what was wrong with our sweet little boy. We have come a very long way since that awful diagnosis day, but it hasn’t been easy. Beckett persevered through very intense chemotherapy for over one year… lots of hospital stays, missed out on public outings, no more school and no play dates with his friends while he was immunosuppressed. Beckett is now almost 6 years old and in the maintenance stage of his treatment. Most days he looks and acts like a typical, healthy kindergartener between his hospital visits one or two times a month. Just last week he learned how to ride his bike without the training wheels! It was a huge victory to see him back to being a kid again!He is still on daily chemotherapy medications at home and will continue his treatments both at home and at the hospital until February 2024.  We cannot wait for Beckett to ring that bell, but we know that the fears of a relapse or long term complications from the chemo will never go away.  Thank you for helping the Saint Baldrick’s Foundation in their mission to help kids like Beckett. These children have been given an unimaginable obstacle during what should be the most innocent and carefree years of their lives.
