My Story

Tristan Patrick Quigley, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) at the age of 2. This is a very rare leukemia found in children. Tristan was diagnosed in August 2000 and was able to receive his sister, Sarah’s bone marrow for a transplant. Getting to the transplant stage was a battle that took a trial drug. He received his sister’s marrow in January 2001. In May of 2001 he relapsed. Another trial drug was offered at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He lived for another 3 months. Through his yearlong battle he was surrounded by his loving family, friends and amazing staff at Children’s Hospital in Seattle. He taught his family and friends the value of living life with joy and to express love in all that you do. His family and friends join St. Baldrick’s to continue his brave fight with all of the people that have been touched by childhood cancer and want to see an end to this disease.
