My Story

My perfect bright life came to a quick pause in July 2018. My mom had taken me to several doctor appointments and ER visits but knew something more than a sinus infection was taking over my tiny body. When she was finally told my diagnosis her world turned grey. She kept faith, she believed in my strength and determination which is why I’m still here fighting the good fight! I’m currently at Week 31 of my 66 week treatment plan. I have battled 28 rounds of proton beam radiation therapy and I will turn the corner and enter maintenance phase in May 2019. Surgery to remove my tumor is ideal but in the location of mine I would be left disfigured. Currently my 6CM nasal tumor has downsized to about 2CM. I 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.
