My Story

On February 25, 2014, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). I am 2 1/2 years old and a FIGHTER! I know that with the help of my mommy, daddy, family, and friends I will be cured from this horrible disease. The struggle is there and very real. I have been scared, sad, and have had some long rough nights. I have been in treatment for about a year now doing very well. I am in the maintenance portion of my treatment. All of my doctors tell me I am responding very well to the treatments. My mommy is a hair dresser, and my daddy is a firefighter. I know that I will beat this and will make my daddy worry about boys, my mommy help me pick out my prom dress and will one day have a little baby of my own. St. Baldricks is a great event and we will find a cure with the help of all that are willing. It could be closer than we all think! 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.
