My Story

Bianka was diagnosed at age 4 with a malignant brain cancer called supratentorial neuroectodermal brain tumor or sPNET mid February 2014. She completed extensive treatment and enjoyed several cancer-free months with family and friends and enjoyed every minute of it by going back to school, dancing in the ballet class, and having fun going to playdates, concerts, shows, and plays. Unfortunately, in May 2015 an MRI revealed that the tumor has returned. On the first day of the radiation, Bianka experienced a brain bleed and was sent home on hospice. However, she recovered from the bleed and made it to Disney World, one thing she wanted to do more than anything in the world. Bianka spent her last few weeks surrounded by loved ones, meeting princesses on her dream come true wish trip, going on motorcycle rides, and feeling the beachy sand between her toes. Bianka will always be a shining light to all who have known her, beloved by family, friends and her whole community. She touched us all with her grace, joy, spunk, beauty and spirit and even though she lost her life to cancer, she never has lost her fight. She lived her life with joy, grace, courage, and love until the very last day of her life. She died peacefully at home surrounded with her family on July 29, 2015. Her incredible spirit has forever transformed all around her. 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. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
