My Story

Briana was first diagnosed when she was just 2 1/2 years old. She underwent just over two years of chemotherapy, and came off treatment in May of 2006. The doctors told me that the first big step was to get to the 2 year off treatment mark. "Most kids that make it that far without treatment don't relapse." Unfortunately in April 2008, just one month from her two year mark, the cancer returned. She again endured another two years of chemotherapy, and came off treatment for the second time in June of 2010. She did really well for almost three years, until April of 2013 when she relapsed yet again. This time the doctors told us that chemotherapy would not cure her. Our only hope for a cure was a bone marrow transplant. Briana endured some really harsh rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, and received her bone marrow transplant in August of 2013. She is still on treatment at this time, although she is doing well. There have definitely been some huge bumps along the way, but through it all God has been so faithful. We are so thankful for where we are today!Thank you for supporting Briana 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.
