My Story

I am now an angel watching over my family. My brother, Hunter, is my hero. At 6yrs he made the decision to donate his bone marrow to me, hoping to give me a 50/50 chance at life (before the transplant my chances were 0%). His bone marrow worked PERFECTLY, but my little liver, kidneys and heart were so badly damaged from the chemotherapy (used to kill my "bad" bone marrow) that I was unable to survive. Now, Hunter honors me by being a Shavee for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. He won't talk about me with you because it still hurts too much. Because I am an angel, I can see his spirit and I know how much he still loves me! Thank you for supporting him in his effort to honor me and help more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
