My Story

In 2001, at the age of five, Tino was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma cancer (a cancer of the nervous system). Tino had a large tumor wrapped around his adrenal gland and many of his vital organs. There were cancerous lesions all over his body and his bone marrow was 90% cancer cells. Things did not look good for him. He underwent several months of aggressive treatments including chemotherapy, surgeries, a stem cell transplant and radiation. The doctors told us that the treatment would probably take his life before the cancer did. This year Tino is celebrating 16 years of being cancer free.  My son is alive today because of advancements made through research. I thank each and every one of you for participating in St. Baldrick's and for making a difference in the world of childhood cancer.
