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. My daughter, Kelley, lost her battle with Ewing Sarcoma when she was 16 years old. She battled cancer for 5 1/2 years and she was so brave throughout the entire ordeal. Pediatric cancer affects an entire family, when your child is diagnosed with cancer your entire life, and that of every member of your family and your friends, are all affected. A day does not go by since we lost her that she is not in our thoughts and will always be in our hearts. Our prayer is that one day there will be a cure, or at least more funding made available, so that other children and other families do not have to go through what our daughter and our family has gone through. Thank you all for your support and for taking the time to remember our Kelley!
