My Story

Braxton was diagnosed with GBM, an adult type of brain cancer in October 2014. He had just turned 6 years old. He would undergo chemotherapy, radiation, and brain surgery over the next 2 1/2 years without complaint, always fighting with a smile! At the end of July at 8 1/2 years old, Braxton passed away into the arms of Jesus! He was an inspiration to many, collecting over 1300 Lego sets for other children fighting cancer while he himself was still battling, because he "wanted to make his friends smile." 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.
