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. Colin was diagnosed at age 9 with stage 4 brain cancer, Medullablastoma. Within days he had a full resection surgery to remove the tumor and then underwent 6 weeks Proton Radiation therapy and 13 months of chemotherapy.  Colin finished his treatment August 20th, 2015 and is currently NED, No evidence of disease and being monitored with an MRI every 6 months. Colin is a strong athletic who played hockey, soccer and golf prior to diagnosis. Colin get back on the ice to relearn to skate 3 months post surgery and tried to attend practices throughout chemotherapy treatment as much as possible. Throughout treatment Colin physically struggled with the effects of treatment but mentally he was strong, funny, sweet and a fighter. We battled this disease with outstanding family and friend support and also with smiles and laughter, especially as much as we were in the hospital. Colin is full of life, loves an adventure, strong willed, sarcastic and full of humor. His smile is contagious and just warms your heart. Colin continues to be NED, no evidence of disease, in hopes for a cure. #cantstopcolin
