My Story

Caleb is currently battling cancer for the second time. On April 2000, Caleb was diagnosed with JMML, a rare form of leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant. He was cancer free since Dec, 2001. Unfortunately, on March, 2013, Caleb was diagnosed with Nerve Sheath Tumor. He underwent 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 13 days of radiation. Unfortunately, there are no more traditional treatments available due to Caleb's first battle of cancer and other health problems. Caleb's family turned to natural medicine, alkaline water and a very strict diet to battle his cancer. In addition to battling cancer, Caleb suffered from two mini strokes which damaged his nerves on his left side, in particular, his left leg. Caleb endures great pain and (except for two months in early fall), has been homebound since February, 2013. 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.
