My Story

On October 19, 2018, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. My diagnosis came as a complete shock. I didn’t have any of the normal AML symptoms, and in fact, was at school practicing for a soccer sectional game when my parents received my diagnosis. I had four rounds of intense chemotherapy and spent more than 5 months in the hospital. On January 9, 2020 my leukemia relapsed and I was re-admitted to the hospital for treatment.  I will need a bone marrow transplant as part of this treatment.  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.
