My Story

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. On 1/18/14, Shannon and Ben realized their daughter, Penelope, had somehow gone blind. After many procedures and tests, Penelope was diagnosed with high risk stage IV Neuroblastoma on January 22nd, 2014. Her originating tumor is in her abdomen by her spine. The cancer has spread through her bone marrow to numerous spots on her bones (doctors didn't even count these). There are two bigger tumors on her skull, one of which has caused Penelope to go blind. The doctors are also convinced that Penelope has been in pain for quite some time. She will have to endure numerous rounds of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, bone marrow transplant and antibody treatment. This is looking to be at least a year to a year and a half journey. Please join us as mom, dad, grandpa & friend, Amber, keep you updated on this page!
