My Story

Thank you for supporting him 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. It's already hard to learn, age, and make friends, when you add steriods that make you mad or overly sad, meds that make you exahsted, and meds that make you lose your hair, sometimes the already difficult task of growing up and living is even harder. This doesn't even include the financial burden...Having the support from others and raising aweness everywhere is so amazing. More research needs to be done. I know children that didn't survive the fight, he has friends that came out of remission and have to do it all over. It's a difficult battle, let's help these warriors anyway we can. More research is an amazing place to start.

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.
