My Story

Hello - my name is Rev. Tony Childs - and my niece is battling  Ewing's Sarcoma. She is an incredible, brave, spirited and beautiful little girl. She and her twin brother Aidan just celebrated their birthday in January. Carmella has been through a really rough time the past eight months, since being diagnosed in August, 2017. She has taken exhaustive and brutal rounds of chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions and a major surgical procedure in December to help her to get well. So far, she is doing ok, but, she has a very long way to still go. I am going to help her this March by taking part in a St. Baldrick's Foundation head shaving event (I'm almost bald already, but this is for a GREAT cause, my little niece!). I hope you will consider supporting Carmella by making any contribution you are able to for this special event! 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/or financial blessings (money) with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure, in particular, my niece, Carmella Childs. Thanks and God Bless. Rev. Tony Childs
