My Story

Jackson had been experiencing knee/thigh pain for about 2 months, we thought it could have possibly been growing pains. We were going to the doctor, ER, specialists and nothing was coming up. I took him to the ER for possible dehydration and through the course of 6 days, we found out that he had osteosarcoma, had a flap on his mitral valve and had multiple strokes. He didn’t even get the opportunity to fight the cancer. Jackson and his mom have both previously fundraised for St. Baldricks.
