My Story

I was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor December 30, 2008. I went through chemotherapy from August 2009-December 2010 and again from December 2012-November 2013. My tumor is currently stable and I get quarterly MRI's at the Cleveland Clinic to check my tumor. I am a brave boy who likes turtles, Legos and Minecraft & Angry Birds video games. I am in fourth grade and do well in school. 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.

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
