My Story

Amanda, my niece, was diagnoised with a desmoid tumor at age 15. A Desmoid tumor that is very rare. It is not malignant but is very aggressive in growth and often returns. By the time we found this tumor it had rapped it's way around her uterus, ovaries, urethra, iliac arteries, and some of her large intestines. What we thought would be a 2 hour surgery took 9 hours and 5 specialist to complete. Amanda is tumor free now but not without some losses and complications. I decided to be a shavee for St Baldricks because of Amanda.
