My Story

In August of 2018, after a great summer of travel and visiting with friends in Canada, Olivia's life changed. Ongoing back pain as well as other symptoms led us to a diagnosis of Stage 4 Wilms Tumor. Olivia's right Kidney and surrounding lymph nodes are the most directly impacted. Two small spots on her lungs were also noted. Our journey to cure Olivia began quickly with the expert help of the Doctor's and Nurses at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. Olivia has been hospitalized for three weeks and just finished her third round of chemotherapy. She's feeling good! With the support of her family, friends, high school and the greater community, she's determined to beat this! Olivia can't wait to get back to school and to continue dancing, something she's been doing since she was just a toddler. Thank you for supporting Olivia 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.  Please be generous so we can win the battle over childhood cancer!
