My Story

Just one week after baby sister was born, Gwen was diagnosed with ALL. Fortunately, this type of childhood cancer has a good prognosis and can be successfully treated through chemotherapy. We are almost halfway through our journey and Gwen’s body has reacted very well to treatment thus far. Although we have endured a very difficult past year, it has made our family realize how fortunate we are. Our community has supported us in ways we didn’t know was imaginable. We can’t help but think about the children and families who are diagnosed with a type of cancer that does not have a cure or promising prognosis. 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.
