My Story

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.


On November 30, 2018,  I found a strange lump in my collarbone.  I asked to go to the doctor that day.  Within a few weeks,  I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  That was how my journey began.


I named my lump Willis.  My mom says that Willis and I are a great team.  Willis popped out to tell me something was wrong.  I had the courage to tell my parents I needed to see a doctor.  Awareness and courage  are critical.


I have now realized that stronger- less toxic medications  need to be discovered to treat myself and my fellow cancer kids.  Research is critical.  


Awareness,  courage,  research and the desire to make a difference!!! Are you with me?
