My Story

Kai was a little boy who left an enormous imprint in the lives of many. A miracle to his parents, he was a sweet, kind, and caring soul. In less than 3 years, Kai shared his enormous energy, smile, laughter, and warmth with friends, teachers, family, and strangers. Kai has continued to remind us that he is still with us and every time the sun is shining we know he is watching over us. On March 6th, 2014, Kai was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The following week it was identified as Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT). This rare and aggressive brain cancer led to Kai's passing on March 21st, 2014, three months before his 3rd birthday. He has been remembered and loved everyday since. 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.
