My Story

Joshua is the definition of a true hero.  He was diagnosed at age 9 with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma and is celebrating his 9th year of being cancer free!  He uses his survival story to inspire others to NEVER give up.  Enjoys being a LIT at camp Sunrise every year and prays for those who have earned their angel wings. His faith and spirit carried him through the fight of his life and he never gave up.  He beat the odds and wants others to remember the fight is never over!  Without donations to organizations like St. Baldrick's, children will continue to struggle to fight not only the disease of cancer, but the long term side effects that can affect children into adulthood.  We must spread the word, raise funds, and find better treatments to help our children survive and live a full life. 

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Who's Honoring Me

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
