My Story

Bailey has been skipping school and spending her time getting treatment at MSTI pediatrics since August 29th 2013. After a summer spent building houses in New Orleans for victims of Katrina, visiting her brother in Jackson Hole and working sterilizing utensils at an oral surgeons office she started to feel easily fatigued. As her senior year started her problem began to become more evident. She could barely make it through five minutes of cross country practice let alone climb the stairs without getting winded. After several doctors’ visits and a blood test Bailey was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, her blood was 90% cancer. Now, almost halfway through treatment Bailey could not be doing better, despite steroid induced cravings and an occasional stay at St. Lukes Health Spa. When she is not harassing her favorite nurses at the clinic she enjoys reading, quoting Disney movies and hanging out with friends. Though treatment can be hard she likes to think of her journey to recovery as a roller coaster that’s only going up. Bailey is looking forward to attending college in California and one day hopefully designing rides for Disneyland. 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.
