My Story

Margy is a terrifc kid - energetic, intelligent and curious...and now healthy!  At nearly 8 years old, she loves to play piano (I think she practices 5 times a day), dance ballet, play basketball and soccer, and read books. Margy was diagnosed with ALL on June 10, 2011, just after her 3rd birthday. After 2 1/2 years of treatment, Margy's port was removed in December 2013...no more ER visits for fevers - what a relief!  Her bloodwork ever since has been excellent and shows no evidence of disease. Margy's family is so grateful to all of the volunteers at St. Baldrick's - she is living proof that what you do matters. Margy was in a maintenance therapy clinical trial (still ongoing) that is studying the effects of 4 different treatment regimens on toxicity and disease-free survival. Your fundraising efforts help pay for this study.  Discovering how we can reduce toxicity without sacrificing cure rates can ease the stress of therapy on the child and their family and friends.  Give what you can and know that you truly are making a big difference in the lives of children suffering from cancer and their loved ones.
