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. I first found out about my brain tumor in August of 2014, when I was 8. After a hard road of radiation and chemotherapy over the next year, that I now barely remember, I had hoped that my journey was done. After that I grew my hair out and then shaved it for St. Baldrick’s. I ended up being the top raiser of our local event. At the time, I wanted to raise money so that other kids wouldn't have to go through what I did, or worse, and with hopes of cures being found for childhood cancers. In June of 2016, I found out about a regrowth of my tumor. I had another surgery to my head, 6 more weeks of radiation, and a year of chemotherapy. I did more hair growing and fundraising after treatment ended. In August of 2020, history repeated itself by way of a recurrence. This meant more surgery, more radiation and more chemotherapy. The treatment regimes have all been slightly different to try to make this not come back again, but in the end, all I and every other cancer patients want is a cure. Period.
