My Story

Jacob was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) when he was 8 years old. 6 months later, he was diagnosed with avascular necrosis - death of the bone in his hip - caused by the chemo drugs that saved his life.  Standard treatment for his type of cancer is 3 years and 3 months for boys.  With help from the St Baldrick's Foundation, one day they will have a better treatment that does not cause all of this additional harm. One day they will have a treatment that is shorter. One day, the children with much worse types of cancer will have the same hope that we have as parents of a child with ALL leukemia. Thank you for donating to St Baldricks.
