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, I had hoped that my journey was done. Two years ago, I shaved my head for St. Baldrick's and 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. 2 months after that event, I found out about a regrowth of my tumor. I had another surgery to my head, 6 more weeks of radiation, and finished a year of chemotherapy.   I was grew my hair out since that shave, in order to do St. Baldrick's again last year. A couple of months ago, my hair started to fall out. It's happening at a slower rate this time around, and I am hoping to still have some left for the event this year. Whatever hair I have left will be shaved and I will raise as much as I can to help find a cure...as my current campaign is "so that I don't have to go bald again".
