My Story

Damian (DayDay) was diagnosed August of 2013 with medullablastoma located under his cerebellum.  He was 6 years old. He battled through many surgeries, aggressive chemo, radiation and a bone marrow transplant. After 4 years of clear scans he was diagnosed with a relapse of medullablastoma September of 2018. This time it was located in his spine. Damian has another long tough fight ahead. He fights with smile and focuses on the good stuff. He’s always thinking about our next adventure, delicious dishes and visits with family and friends. 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.
