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. Bretton was diagnosed with osteosarcoma on May 18,2016 at the age of 15. He immediately underwent 10 weeks of chemo and then on August 3rd had his right leg amputated below the knee. Now he is in week 11 of 20 more weeks of chemo. Thru it all he has kept a positive attitude and made it his goal to simply make others smile. Whether it his other patients, his doctors, nurses, and family. He continually impresses us with his "thankful" attitude.

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Who's Honoring Me

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
