My Story

Our Dear, Sweet, 2 year old Sophia was diagnosed on January 20, 2015 with a glioneuronal brain tumor. This is a very general diagnosis and, although the prognosis is good, the research hasn't been done to narrow the definition of the type of tumor she has so we are moving forward with great faith that this treatment will work.  We appreciate all of the work St. Baldrick's is doing to fund research so our daughter, as well as the 300,000 children who will be diagnosed this year, can get the best and most targeted treatment for their cancers. More research would also give them the best shot at a full and healthy life post-treatment and reduce their risks and chance of survival of the many secondary cancers and conditions that are caused by treating their primary cancers. Thank you for supporting us as we work to help our daughter while creating a better environment for all the children who live with this disease. 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.
