“Your son has cancer”; this is not the news any parent wants to hear, especially when you are on vacation over a thousand miles from home. William was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) On March 3, 2012 while our family was vacationing in Florida. We were completely devastated. We spent 12 nights in Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital before we were able to return home and continue our treatment with Marshfield Clinic. We are happy to say that William completed his 38 months of treatment on May 11, 2015. Now, our focus is to raise money and awareness for other families that have not yet heard those devastating words, "your child has cancer".
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.
