My Story

Santino (aka Tino), was diagnosed on August 3, 2023. He has been battling hard every single day since, showing cancer and the world that he is “TinoTough”.   Tino loves baseball and before getting sick, his All Star team won their district championship, then went on to win the South Carolina state championship and then played in the World Series in Rockwood, TN. He was struggling to play that weekend but played his heart out, not knowing his little body was actually battling cancer. After several tests and dr visits following the World Series, 2 weeks later, he was diagnosed. We are so proud of how brave, strong and courageous Tino has been and continues to be. 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.
