My Story

In Jan. of 2007, Brooke was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 2. In May of 2009 she completed the 2 and 1/2 year protocol of treatment. She was such a trooper and inspiration to us through it all. Now 8+ months off of treatment, we thank God for every precious, healthy day we have with our girl. Every four weeks she has a blood draw to check that she is still in remission while we hold our breath and pray that the news is good once more. We constantly pray that she never has to relive the nightmare of fighting cancer and that she is able to overcome the many long term side effects that she faces from so much chemo. going into such a young body. Brooke is now a 5 year old cancer survivor who is enjoying every moment of feeling well again. She loves kindergarten and playing with her little sister. She is an animal lover and cares for her pets (several goldfish) and her stuffed animals with all her heart. She is really looking forward to getting our first puppy this summer! She loves riding her bike and scooter, going fishing and playing hide and seek. She also keeps in touch with several of her cancer buddies from clinic and when saying her prayers at night, she often talks to her cancer friends who are now in heaven. She knows the importance of raising money to help improve cancer treatment and to try and keep other kids from getting cancer. Thank you for your support of St. Baldrick's and all that this organization does to help make that a real possibility!
