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 am 11 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer on February 28, 2017. On March 27, 2017, I had a mastectomy to remove my left breast. I also wondered what it would be like to be special, but I never wanted to be this kind of special.While recovering I have been reading my favorite book series. I love to read. My doctor said that she was able to remove all of my cancer cell. I am ready to move on to the next chapter of my life.

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
