My Story

Ava was diagnosed in October of 2014 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her life quickly turned from being a carefree kid in preschool to a kid who has to endure numerous chemotherapy infusions, spinal taps, injections, frequent hospitalizations, countless issues with nausea, vomiting, and missing out on just being able to be a kid. Children like Ava deserve more funding for pediatric cancer research. 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.
