My Story

I am a cancer survivor. My brother is a cancer survivor. 2 brothers, 2 different cancer diagnosis 12 years apart. Cancer is not easy, it is not fun and it really stinks. Chemotherapy is awful, blood tests are painful, MRI's give you headaches, the whole thing is bad. I know and I am going to shave my head to help other kids who have to do it too. 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.
