My Story

My son, my hero, Michael Orbany, started the battle for his life on October 19, 2010 when he was diagnosed with metastatic medulloblastoma, cancer of the brain and spine. No child should ever endure what these children must go through. 7 children are taken from us each and everyday because of some form of cancer. This is unacceptable. We must be their voices. We must find cures.To help kids fighting cancer, I'm a volunteer with the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Please support me! With head-shaving and other fundraising events, this volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you! Click "Make a donation" to give online, or donate by phone or mail. 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.
