My Story

2018-All is well as Kristen has entered 4th grade. Her health continues to be good and she is busy enjoying life; just like kids without cancer! She spends her time playing basketball, going to dance and hanging with her friends. She is now an active part of team Kristen's Krusade raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer research!! 2017- Kristen is FABULOUS! Her health is good and she is enjoying all the things 9 year old love to do! She is in 3rd grade and loves playing soccer, ice skating and makeup!! She just finished up her duties as a flower girl at her cousin's wedding and love every minute of it! We are grateful for Kristen's continued good health and know full well others are often not so fortunate. We continue to wholeheartedly support the great work of The St. Baldricks Foundation and look forward to another successful event in 2017!  2016- Kristen's cancer continues to be held at bay. She is in 2nd grade and getting ready to make her 1st Communion; just like other 8 year olds! We are extremely grateful for Kristen's good health as other kids are not so fortunate. For this reason we continue to be involved in the St Baldricks Foundation so maybe someday in the future, no family will ever have to hear those horrible words, " Your son,daughter, sister, or brother, has cancer" 2015- Kristen's cancer continues to remain in a STABLE state which means it is neither growing nor spreading - YIPPEE!! She now goes in every 6 months to Sloan Kettering in NYC for routine scans and tests to make sure her cancer is behaving.....it's always a stressful visit but the results have been encouraging and we believe the love, support and prayers from all our family and friends helps us to remain optimistic. Kristen is now in 1st grade and doing well. She loves to read, play on her iPAD, color and of course, play with her beloved Barbie dolls! She enjoys much the same activities as kids who do not have cancer; dancing school, girl scouts, soccer, etc. She is a miracle warrior who is destined to kick cancer to the curb! While Kristen is doing well, we know many other kids battling cancer are not so fortunate and that is why donating time and money to the St Baldricks Foundation is SO very important!! Join us!
