My Story

>Thank you for supporting Alex 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 money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. We spent 28 days in the hospital in the first round of treatment and everyday we were grateful to have such a wonderful team of specialized doctors and nurses treating Alex. We are lucky to live 20 minutes from one of the best places to treat childhood cancer, this fact made Alex's diagnosis a lot easier to handle. We wish every child fighting cancer around the world had access to this same treatment and hopefully one day this will be true.
