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. At the age of 14 months Frank was diagnosed with late stage Bilateral Retinoblastoma. After his right eye was removed he had 35 Radiation Treatments followed by 1 year of Chemotherapy. In May of 2011 he graduated Nursing School and went to work at HF Wyandotte Hospital. In Oct.2011 he was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma in the Sinus cavity. He was Cancer free until July of 2014 . He has Rhabdomyosarcoma in the opposite Sinus Cavity and is currently finishing treatment.
