My Story

Hello my name is gabriel and I am a forever 9 angel. 

 I was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma (it is just 1 of over 120 types of brain tumor)  on March 6th 2015. 

I had surgery to remove a golf ball sized tumor from my right temporal lobe after we learned it had spread to my spine and to my brain stem. I had also formed cysts through out my brain. 

I went through radiation therapy, took oral and High dose IV chemo and I was even on a trial study.

And even though I was sick I never let it stop me and I always had something to smile about.

We traveled from coast to coast and met some pretty amazing people, me and my dad even got national attention when a picture of his tattoo matching my brain surgery scar went viral.

I fought hard for 3 long years and on Feb 2nd the lord told me to lay down my sword and come on home, my fight was over. I left behind my mom and dad and my little sis makinzley. 

They never stop hoping for a cure so  that one day kids like me won't have to fight and can be just kids. 

That is where St. Baldricks steps in they are helping fund scientists working on new treatments designed specifically for kids.
