Hello - meet Eleanor. Ella, Ella-bean, Ella-jo, Little Miss Sunshine. She loves her big brother, he is her whole world. She loves to sing and dance, read books, loves being outside to swing or go for walks, and she loves lots of hugs and kisses from her mommy and daddy.
Eleanor was diagnosed on September 2nd, 2012 at six months old with High-Risk Infant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her treatment will end on September 2nd, 2014. The 4 year Event Free Survival (EFS) of Infant ALL, according to the largest study of its kind is 47%. But Ella is fighting with all of her might. Cure rates for Infant Leukemias have not increased in the last ten years. There has been no progress to boast, there’s no acknowledgement in rallying calls for cancer research - the opposite actually. The little ones need heroes to help fund research to find new ways to treat them, to help them live through the intense treatments and to help them stay in remission.
Thank you for supporting Ella 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.
