My Story

Jamie Deibel was 12 years old when she was diagnosed with ALL leukemia. She had been very active in sports and always healthy, so it was quite a shock to receive this news. Jamie's treatment lasted 2 1/2 years. During those years her world was flipped turned upside with many difficult procedures, but she managed to make the most of her time. She is now 10 years out of treatment. Jamie took her cancer experience and made something positive out of it. Jamie and her mom, Taylor, started their own St. Baldrick's event at St. Albert. She also recruits her own team, "Jamie's Gents & Gals" for the 4th Street Live event. This will be her 12th year recruiting and participating with St. Baldricks. Between her 4th Street Live team and her event at St. Albert Jamie has helped to raise over $925,000 to conquer childhood cancer Jamie graduated with a degree in Health Science from EKU in May 2011 and from UofL with a degree in psychology in May 2012. Since graduation, Jamie was an intern for the Children's Hospital Foundation in Louisville, which helps raise funds for the local hospitals which have given so much to her. She is currently working with the school and youth department at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise funds to cure all blood cancers!
