My Story

Thank you for supporting Emma and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and donations with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. Emma was diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia at 2 years, 8 months. She has a 2 1/2 year treatment plan which includes chemotherapy daily, spinal taps, steroids, 10 days of cranial radiation, etc. Emma is finding her way through it with a smile on her face most days. Emma currently has 4 months of treatment remaining with some peaceful times of smooth sailing & other extremely tough, challenging & scary times. Emma is teamed up with Team Supercuts and is pictured with an amazing woman, Olga, who will be shaving her head at this amazing event. Thank you to everyone who has helped along this journey and continues to support us & all the other children in desperate need of a cure!
