My Story

It was a sad day when I was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia in October 2016. It was a life changing event that will forever live in my memory. However, through this unexpected journey, I have learned how truly lucky I am. I am lucky for all the prayers and support from my family, friends, and the community that I have received. With the research provided by St. Baldrick's Foundation, I know I am getting the best treatments possible. I have a strong chance of curing this disease and living a long and happy life. 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.
