My Story

Thank you for supporting me 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. On December 10, 2012 Angelina Roberto was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and then later diagnosed with Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive (Ph+) Acute Lymploblastic Leukemia (ALL) at the tiny age of 2 1/2 yrs old. It was on December 9th when they took Angelina to the local ER to discover that Angelina had red dots and bruises on different parts of her body along with a very swollen Liver and Kidneys- Once blood work was completed the hospital decided to have her transported to a specialized hospital without telling what they had suspected. It wasn’t until the arrival at St. Peter’s Hospital that we had learned the devastating news. As many of you could imagine, that is a day that her family's world was turned upside down, it's also the day that marks the beginning of Angelina's fight against leukemia.... Angelina comes from a very STRONG amazing family and will fight this! For those of you that do not know, Angelina is the daughter of Ed and Crystal Roberto and sister of older brother Dante. Angelina is currently in her 8th month of treatment.
