My Story

Adeline, known as Addie Mae, was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma 1 month after her 7th birthday. Addie Mae has an older brother and a younger brother. She loves doing girly things with her Mom and being a Daddy's girl. Her Pah affectionately calls her hooligan. Addie loves playing with her brothers and spending time with all of her animals on the "farm". Addie Mae understands that she has cancer in her brain. She knows that the six weeks of radiation she's received has shrunk the tumor. What she doesn't know is that DIPG is terminal. Or that much more funding is needed to discover treatment options or a cure. If she knew, she would say '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.'
