My Story

Drew is an amazing little boy who began his fight against cancer on August 6, 2010. He loves soccer, baseball and playing with friends. Drew is a wonderful big brother to his two younger brothers. He has shown such strength and maturity through out his treatment process and is an inspiration to all who know and love him. Drew finished his 3+ year treatment in November of 2014. He remains monitored closely by his doctors and will be considered cured 5 years after the completement of treatment. Thank you for supporting him 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.
